As good as I expected it to be - he finds something new to say in every piece. The BWV 1056 comes almost lightfooted, elegant, galant style, other performers tend to emphasize the powerful side of this work. Recommended.

Playing the Jean Rondeau disc repeatedly since it arrived yesterday - excellent, hghly recommended. It will be hard for me to listen to any other recording of these concertos from now on.
