Magical Bach Partitas!
The CD titles “Bach’s Partitas Nos. 2-4” was a wonderful addition to my CD collection. And the follow-on recording of Bach’s Partitas No. 1, 5 & 6 was the perfect complement to Murray Perahia’s preceding volume of Bach’s partitas for solo keyboard.
Here, for you, is my Spotify playlist titled “Hank’s Bach-Perahia” that will give you taste of Mr. Perahia’s mastery:
On the second CD, this amazing interpreter of J. S. Bach plays with all the thoughtful grace and elegance we’ve come to expect in all of his recordings of Bach’s music.
Perahia is technically precise and artistically sensitive. His readings of Partitas Nos. 1, 5 & 6 are at the very top level of his extraordinary musical ability. Perahia is also well served by a recorded sound that is clear, very well balanced and vivid.
Here is the J. S. Bach Partita No. 6 in E minor, BWV 830 as performed by Murray Perahia
And next, from the same CD, here is Bach’s Partita No. 1 in B-flat major, BWV 825 – V. Menuet I & II
