Johann Sebastian Bach waited until he was over forty before publishing any of his works. Even then, he staggered publication of his Partitas over the four years from 1726 to 1729. This new recording from Richard Egarr illuminates these multifaceted masterpieces, crowning his already extensive series of the composer's harpsichord works.

Bach’s Opus 1
Johann Sebastian Bach waited until he was over forty before publishing any of his works. Even then, he staggered publication of his Partitas over the four years from 1726 to 1729. But, to quote Richard Egarr, ‘these six offerings are immense in musical scope, and in compositional and technical virtuosity’. And his new recording of them, crowning his already extensive series of the composer’s harpsichord works, illuminates every one of their multiple facets.

L'Opus 1 de Bach
Jean-Sébastien Bach a plus de 40 ans lorsqu'il publie l'une de ses oeuvres pour la première fois. Il étalera même l'édition de ses Partitas sur quatre années, de 1726 à 1729 !
Mais selon Richard Egarr, "ces six oeuvres sont d'une importance musicale majeure, tant en termes de composition que de virtuosité." Son nouvel enregistrement, qui complète une série déjà conséquente dédiée aux oeuvres pour clavecin du Cantor, met en lumière chacune de leurs multiples facettes.

Bachs Opus 1
Johann Sebastian Bach war über vierzig Jahre alt, bevor auch nur eines seiner Werke im Druck erschien. Und auch dann war er noch zögerlich und verteilte die Veröffentlichung seiner Partiten über vier Jahre, von 1726 bis 1729. Aber, um Richard Egarr zu zitieren: „Diese sechs Partiten sind von einem gewaltigen musikalischen Gestaltenreichtum und bezwingend in ihrer kompositorischen und technischen Virtuosität.“ In dieser Neueinspielung der Partiten, Krönung seiner bereits vorliegenden zahlreichen Aufnahmen der Cembalowerke von Bach, lässt er jede von ihnen in ihrem ganzen Facettenreichtum erstrahlen.
