Bach: French Suites

Archived

  • Angela Hewitt piano

Bach’s so-called French Suites were largely written between 1722 and 1725. They are in fact ruled by the manners of contemporary Italian music, albeit spiced by allusions to other national dance styles.

Angela Hewitt’s recording of the French Suites was named as a Gramophone Editor’s Choice and hailed by The Sunday Times for making ‘Bach’s music live… in a way that even the greatest harpsichordists do not’.
