I think this is interesting. Familiar repertoire and composers, or relatively, but played poetically and introspectively. No bravura. Agnes Ratkó is an experience harpsichord teacher who has just made this, her first recording. The instrument is based on the Colmar Ruckers, tuned meantone 1/5 comma. Very well recorded.

This may well be a "top recommendation" for someone who wants a harpsichord taster recording. It reminds me of Trevor Pinnock's CD called Journey, but Ratko is a better musician using a better instrument and is recorded better to boot.

Basically I like this a lot. Once I start listening to it I can't stop.

Another fabulous one to revisit, not just the playing but also the selection of music.  It looks like there was a plethora of  releases from interesting new young harpsichordist five years ago, but either I've not got my eye on the ball or it's all dried up.
