The harpsichord is not my favorite instrument, but Verlet is really good. In particular, her Froberger is sublime.

There are some fresh things in the Philips series. The Balbastre, the Louis Marchand, the Bach Suites/Partitas, the Goldbergs (once you get past the opening aria!)

A friend of mine sees those Philips recordings as a sort of Gallic reaction against Leonhardt, and it’s interesting to listen to the partitas, for example, with Leonhardt in mind.

Anyone who likes her style should check out her pupil's recordings, Pierre Gallon.

I remember her sparkling recordings of the Mozart violin sonatas with
Gérard Poulet.
