"All these finely recorded performances are models of musical grace and resilience." -- Gramophone [BER 16302]
In the hands of Ragna Schirmer, the 16 suites by G.F. Handel are heard as the zenith of their genre. The pianist has the consummate skill to give each suite its own individual character. Her self-assured style and improvisational ability are both in evidence on this recording, while the whole performance is given a contemporary profile thanks to her responsible and clever handling of the modern instrument.
