This Andreas Klein recording that gives us a snapshot of 300 years of music possessing dance rhythms. Perhaps the cover photograph of a barefoot Klein smiling at us and dressed in preppy clothing offers a good hint of the performances. They are on the benign side and rather optimistic as if Klein is saying to us, "Let's dance and have fun". On the other hand, I don't want to give the impression that Klein is an inconsequential pianist. On the present disc he is technically adept, rhythmically alert to the various dance patterns, and always has a keen sense of the sweep of the music.
