Lisa Goode Crawford may not be a household word such as Wanda Landowska when conversations about gifted harpsichordists arise, but to the inner circle (ever growing) the exquisite craftsmanship, facile dexterity, and acute intelligence place her in the highest echelon of contemporary performers on this difficult instrument. Equally well known for her mastery of French music as she is for the works of Bach, on this recording she offers three works that allow the listener to explore the tendency of Bach to integrate various national styles into his works. The Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue in D minor, BWV 903 is from Bach's German style sparkles with brilliance of execution. The Partita No. 4 in D major, BWV 828 represents the French influence, especially in the Overture, while the English Suite No. 3 in G minor, BWV 808 (despite it's title designation) incorporates the Italian style in the Prelude. It takes more than a smattering of information to appreciate these subtleties, but for those who treasure Bach's music for harpsichord these are particular pleasures. Recorded in the Musée d'Unterlinden, Colmar, France in 2008, Lisa Goode Crawford plays a 1624 harpsichord built in 1624 by Johannes Ruckers. Everything about this recording - from performance quality to recording technique - is as fine as any available on record. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp
