"Sonorous harpsichord, recorded from close up (in 1962 and 1964), but never banging and clanging either. Original pieces and nice discoveries, like Picchi's Balli d'Arpicordo (Dances for Haspichord, of which this was the first complete recording), dance-like, festive, exuberant, stylistically Renaissance-sounding (Picchi was born in 1600 and died young in 1625), and at times harmonically daring. Among the Frescobaldi pieces, the twelve Partite on the Aria from Ruggiero is the most substantial. The liner notes don't tell you, but it is part of Frescobaldi's first book of Toccate e Partie dintavolatura di Cimbalo. Program accomplished by Mr. Puyana, to the hilt." - Discophage
