Customer Review

on 21 May 2009
Pieter Jan Belder is now a well known figure in the early music scene and with this recording he confirms,without a doubt,what a gifted harpsichordist he is.He delivers a fine performance throughout book 1 but his book 2 is fantastic and this is something surprisingly few harpsichordist's have managed to achieve.

I believe this is now THE benchmark performance on harpsichord of the complete well tempered clavier by the same performer.I still prefer Luc Beausejour for book 1 but Belder's book 2 is the greatest on disc.

Pieter Jan Belder has delivered consistently good performances regardless of which composers music he is performing and this recording cements his reputation as a great musician.Although i feel his account of book 1 is not all it could have been this 4 cd set is an essential purchase for his magnificent performance of book 2.
