The instruments used in this recording are possibly the two finest harpsichords in Europe today. They are set at a perfect pitch and obviously care and consideration was given to the humidity in which they are kept. The result is absolute purity in tone.
Michael Borgstede's performance is sublime with a warm richness in colour. His tempo just flows, it does not lag, nor is it precocious. Handel could not have expected a better performance. Five stars are well deserved
