This is a collection of interesting but rarely recorded modern chamber works featuring the harpsichord. I acquired it mainly for the Carter and Falla pieces, with which I'm familiar. The performances of this unusual repertoire are quite good, but they are sabotaged by poor sound. The harpsichord is uniformly under-recorded, so it's almost drowned out whenever the other instruments play. Still worse is the brutally harsh sound of the flute (and occasionally clarinet) in its' upper register, rendering listening quite painful. I've played it on several high-end stereo systems and the sound is still bad. The recording should be remastered or withdrawn from the catalogue.

This is a very clear sounding recording. I attribute that to the players. Harpsichord is not the easiest instrument to listen to, even live, as it is very 'busy' sounding in character. So, along with the beautiful music, the players really made this recording worth listening to.
