Laurence Vittes
Southern California Early Music Society Newsletter, March 2012

From the first note, you can tell this is going to be serious Handel, in the style royal, full of power and radiant grace. And so it is. Even the sound decaying into silence at the end of each Suite have a color and affective emotional tone.

The instrument (a copy of a 1739 harpsichord) is the deal, and gets lots of attention and detail in the notes. The builder was John Phillips, and it was based on an instrument built in Dresden Pillnitz. It is no shrinking violet. The sound is very grand, and highly polished. © 2012 Southern California Early Music Society Newsletter
