Virgin Veritas has added to its attractive series of artists’ ‘portraits’ this fine recital of music by Frescobaldi. The recorded sound of an instrument by Jean-Louis Val is superb, and the versatile Ross seldom puts a finger wrong in his assured stylistic grasp of this virtuoso repertoire by Italy’s greatest keyboard composer in the first half of the 17th century. Frescobaldi excelled in composing toccatas, correntes and variation sets, each of which is represented. Nicholas Anderson
