Features famous and well known baroque music by composers such as Albinoni, Handel, Vivaldi and Telemann.
The album also features a new suite Kei Koito herself has arranged using some of Handel’s best loved works, Suite in G minor.

Kei Koito, originally from Japan, has a career as an esteemed concert organist. She has performed throughout Europe, Russia, Japan, and the Americas. She is acclaimed for her expertise on Baroque and Renaissance music, especially that of JS Bach. Musicians from Japan have gained a reputation in the interpretation of Baroque music, especially for music by JS Bach. Think for example of the highly praised albums of Masaaki Suzuki.
