Jim Morrison wrote (September 14, 2001):

I was just half-heartedly listening to Menno van Delft's Art of Fugue, on Brilliant Classics, while I was doing other things around the house, and was surprised to hear the sound of the clavichord start coming out of my speakers. It turns out that as an appendix he plays three pieces, about 10 minutes worth of music, on the clavichord.

But get this, for two of the pieces van Delft is accompanied by another clavichord player, Siebe Henstra. A clavichord duo! What a find. They play arrangements of BWV 1080/18,1 Contrapunctus 13 inversus and an arrangment of BWV 1080/ 18,2 Contrapunctus rectus.

As the finale to the disc, van Delft plays by himself on clavichord the Canon in Hypodiatesseron, an earlier version of BWV 1080/14.

Well worth hearing, I think, though I haven't been in right frame of mind to do much serious musical appreciation. Anyone else have this disc, or have comments on the Brilliant Classics harpsichord works?
