Richter was my first love, Hewitt (as usual with Bach) has done two great recordings, and Schiff‘s earlier recording is also worth checking out. 

 

I glad you’ve done with Richter. When I see someone recommends Richter for whatever reason I skip all other recommendations from the same source. Need to check Celine Frischs, even if harpsichord is not so involving and  may be difficult to my ears sometimes.

Robert Levin's set in the Hänssler Edition Bachakademie was done on a mix of single/double manual harpsichord, clavichord, church organ and fortepiano.

I have that somewhere. Need to check it out again.

Thanks for sharing. Must say I am not very fond of harpsichord, but I will give Frisch a try.

The transparency you get, for example in prelude 10, is really worth it. Plus I find her Silbermann copy to be among the nicer sounding harpsichords

Is it somehow related to Maria Schneider? Her Cerulean Skies composition from Sky Blue album is one of astonishing beauty.

Recently stumbled upon a wonderfully light-hearted folk duo from Germany. The lady strongly reminds me of Julia, of "Angus and Julia Stone" fame:

 

Available on Qobuz.

I don't think so. Her 'The Thompson Fields' is a very good album too.
