Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Booksaregood
Concerto in D-Minor After Marcello, BWV 974
Italian Concerto, BWV 971
French Ouverture, BWV 831
These are exceptionally fine readings by James Weaver, but the star of this show is the Wolf harpsichord. The sound captured here is simply the best and most beautiful harpsichord I have ever heard. It is a mystery why it is so difficult to record or capture the harpsichord qua instrument, as opposed to “ye olde” social statement, with its essence sounding pin-pointy lovely, without clatter.
Recorded 7-9 December 1987 in the National Museum of American History, Washington D.C.
