Bach, J S: French Suites Nos. 1-6, BWV812-817

Bach, J S: French Suites Nos. 1-6, BWV812-817


Colin Tilney (clavichord)

A superbly recorded new version of this cycle. Colin Tilney is internationally known for his harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano playing, with many solo recordings on DG (Archive), EMI Electrola, Decca, Hyperion, Dorian, Doremi and CBC SM 5000.

“Tilney himself locates these suites between ‘early virtuosity and late mastery’ and to them he brings a relaxed but masterly control of counterpoint, which is arguably enhanced by the clavichord’s shorter resonance.” MusicWeb International, 31st May 2013

Glenn Gould (piano)

This set documents Glenn Gould the concert pianist in unprecedented depth. The recordings range in date from 1951, when Gould was just eighteen years old, to 1960, a few years before he gave up concert life for good. They include all of the genres in which he performed live—solo works, songs, chamber music, concertos. And they cover almost the whole range of his repertoire: the earliest work represented here, by Bach, dates from the early eighteenth century; the latest, by Ernst Krenek (who befriended Gould, and outlived him), was composed in 1943. In between are composers who were central to the young Gould’s repertoire: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Schoenberg, and Webern. Included here are some of his warhorses but also several works of which he never made an authorized studio recording or broadcast, as well as a few interpretations that differ significantly from those in his official releases.
