Isolde Ahlgrimm, 1953: French Suite in E-flat major, BWV 815

Viennese harpsichordist and fortepianist Isolde Ahlgrimm (1914-1995) performs Bach's Suite in E-flat major, BWV 815. I recorded this from a Columbia Masterworks LP (ML 4746), issued in November-December 1953. The actual date of recording can be assumed to be sometime in 1952.
