4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. F. Laurson on June 20, 2008
From his early harpsichord-playing days to conducting Les Talens Lyriques, Christophe Rousset is one of the more exciting figures working in Baroque music. And back at the harpsichord he is - after stints with almost every important record label (Virgin/EMI, L'Oiseau-Lyre/Decca, Naïve, Harmonia Mundi) - he now records one set of Bach works after another for Ambroise. I have passed by his English and French suites, unsure if doubling up in that repertoire would be worth the somewhat hefty price tag on these luxuriously presented double-disc sets. Now I've come into possession of his Clavierbüchlein für Wilhelm Friedemann... and I cannot stop listening to it. His Rosette-winning Decca recording of the Italian Concerto may have much acclaim and it is very fine, indeed... but it does not have that "Wow!" effect. This recording does - and instantly so.

From the first notes of the familiar Praeludium 1, BWV 846a (the name may not be familiar, but you will recognize it if you've ever played piano even at the most rudimentary level) on you are drawn in by one of the richest, cleanest, and enchanting harpsichord sounds I've heard on disc. I cannot imagine anyone so immune or disinclined towards that instrument (tiring as it can sound at times - especially in large quantities) that they would not at least admit that the sound is simply gorgeous. Chritophe Rousset's instrument, a Johannes Ruckers from 1632/1745, restored in 1787, just blooms while retaining such precision that every single note could be followed.

The Klavierbüchlein is the first set of keyboard instructions of Bach's for his eldest son's ninth birthday. It contains a handful of works by composers other than Bach, too, including Telemann and Stölzel.
