This charming collection of Baroque favorites consists largely of transcriptions of keyboard music by Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, and Purcell as well as some original lute works. During the Baroque period it was common to arrange the same music to suit different instruments as necessary, so there's nothing unusual in Segovia's practice here. The Scarlatti pieces are particularly brilliant, with Segovia demonstrating just how Spanish the great Italian composer really became after years as private tutor to the Queen of Spain. The entire recital makes for one of the most satisfying of Segovia's many Baroque compilations and a great way to get to know this great artist. --David Hurwitz
