Alpha pays homage to Gustav Leonhardt in a lavish box set, comprising the last five recordings made by this great pioneer: a wonderful musical legacy. Also included are tributes from musicians and collaborators, such as Philippe Herreweghe, Elisabeth Joyé and Gilles Cantagrel, and the booklet also presents a gallery of hitherto unpublished photographs.
These recordings take us on a fabulous journey into the world of late Renaissance to late Baroque keyboard works and explore a fascinating diversity of instruments (harpsichords, the hybrid claviorganum, the extraordinary Dom Bedos organ of Sainte-Croix in Bordeaux). The last one, for which Gustav Leonhardt was artistic director and organist, is his final recording it is devoted to secular cantatas by J. S. Bach, performed by the ensemble Café Zimmermann.
