piano, Risto Lauriala
Alba ABCD 101:1-2  [CD1: 73:26 - CD2: 72:59]

This two CD set of the Bach six keyboard partitas was recorded at Tampere Hall, Finland in August 1992, Risto Lauriala playing a Steinway grand piano. The notes are just a straight-forward introduction to the music, the CDs, unusually today packaged in a proper double case. The music-making is highly accomplished and attractively captures Bach's great humanity and feeling in this music which represents some of the composer's lighter side. The discs are a sheer delight to listen to, proving that early music authenticity isn't always essential for a first rate release.
