    Quite interesting--the musician's comments were very helpful on the history and context of the sonata pieces. I shifted my perspective to Bach's earlier stage in sonata composition, and the musicality of the works rose in my listening experience. The Harpsichord was amazing!

      Its a lot of music any way you hear it--reminds me of 4 hours of harpsicord performed w/o a break that I heard in some hole-in-the-wall hall in Paris--all Bach I believe.
