Since I will not repeat myself in all the 16 CD'S I just say that to me they are perfect, all of them. Interpretation and sound are right in my ally, and although I will acquire Bob van Asperen's take on Froberger, these Brilliant recordings will be for me the first on the list.
Perfectly recorded. Recommended.
