Fantastico 26 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These are as convincing performances of the solo partitas on harpsichord as I care to hear. Kipnis does marvelous justice to these pieces with the Baroque practice of embellishing repeats, often with highly creative and dramatic embellishments. It's a lot of fun to hear a piece like the Minuet from the first partita bare, then hear what he does with it the second time around. As far as the Partitas themselves go, every single movement from one and two is highly refined and elegant, probably a must in any music lover's collection. There are great allemandes, courantes/correntes and sarabandes (the slow movements) that are supposed to represent the national dances of the time, and a tense Rondeaux that leads into a stormy Capriccio to conclude the second partita. I don't listen to Partita 4 much but it has a great opening movement.

Kipnis Best Harpsichordist 25 July 2007
By Neongrapes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like harpsichord music you must get this CD. Besides, the price is a joke for what you get. On this CD you hear how Bach's keyboard music was meant to be heard. When performed on the piano all the intensity of his music is lost, the piano is too warm, this music needs the bright sound of the harpsichord. The Ouverture from Partita IV and the Sinfonia from Partita II performed by Kipnis are unbelievable. Also, Kipnis ornaments and adds phrasing on repeats, all with good taste, and this is very fascinating because that is what was expected of a player in Bach's day. Great CD

harpsichord anyone? 10 Nov 2005
By Neal J. Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow, go figure I'd give a 5 to a harpsichord CD? It's not even close to my favorite instrument (violin & flute top my list). But this is an impressive CD. I especially liked Partita 2--but it's all in the ear of the beholder, & I'm not at all putting down #1 or #4. So, my recommendation: try it out & see--especially when Amazon is good enough to let you try before you buy. It's worth your time.
