REVIEW:
"Leopard and Paul take things a step in the right direction with their fine account of the trio sonatas arranged for a pair of lautenwerk. I love this rich, resonant instrument; sometimes it sounds like a lute, other times like a super-banjo...The two performers have marvelous ensemble and a great sense of style; the sound is lovely..." - Haskins, American Record Guide

A landmark, debut recording which features not one but two gut-stringed harpsichords (called "Lautenwercke") performed by the virtuoso keyboard duo of Shawn Leopard and John Paul.
These complex sonatas have been transcribed for performance on two magnificent instruments (from the studio of master builder Anden Houben) and the results nothing short of revolutionary! Shawn Leopard and John Paul began their collaboration as Shawn Leopard and John Paul, Music for Two Harpsichords in 1997. They play the entire known repertoire for two harpsichords along with creative transcriptions of their own using both harpsichords strung in brass and iron and two Lautenwercke, and have covered over 50,000 miles across the US giving concerts, informances and school residencies. The most revolutionary Bach CD of the millenium, 250 years in the making!
