Quintets for Harpsichord & Strings, Vol. I 

 Quintets No. 1, 2, & 3 for Harpsichord & Strings 

Padre Antonio Soler (1729 - 1783)

David Schrader, harpsichord

Christopher Verrette & Michael Shelton, violins

Peter Slowik, viola - John Mark Rozendaal, cello

"Soler's distinctive personality is stamped all over [these quintets]. Schrader has recorded two volumes of [Soler's] sonatas for Cedille records, and he brings the same digital skill and musical discrimination to these quintets. He leads a quarter that used mid- and late- eighteenth century original instruments, in performances that are lively, tasteful, and finely balanced. The ensemble is ideally recorded." - Fanfare
