About this release

Bachs French Suites are the ultimate expression of the composer in this genre. This music for keyboard solo is totally autonomous and only stylistically refers to dance forms.

This is a brand new recording by harpsichordist Pieter-Jan Belder playing on an instrument made by Cornelis Bom after Ruckers, Schoonhoven 1999.

The French Suites are combined here with two more suites by Bach, BWV 818 and 819. Excellent performances with a fine ear for Bach’s music.
