5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Recording, 4 May 2011
This review is from: Bach, J.S.: 6 Partitas (DECCA The Originals) (Audio CD)
Decca must be complemented in reissuing these recordings of Bach's Partitas.

Andras Schiff playing of these Partitas is incisive and warm. It is difficult to review perfection which these are. They are very difficult pieces to play, they follow Bach's French and English suites. I have the original 1984/5 version and it is so fresh to listen to. As it is, this is a superb recording and can be recommended very highly. For those who get the latest remastered version, they are very fortunate.

A must have disc is Schiff's': 2 Part and 3 Part Invention on the Decca label. These I bought on foot of this recording , along with The Well-Tempered Clavier Book 2. For me they complement the Partitas. Andras has the measure of Johann Sebastian's keyboard music and he knows how to make the notes literally hang in the air as demanded by the music.

This is the definitive version of the BWV 825-830. It is only when you listen to his other recordings, that the perspective unfolds around you, that Schiff is a master of Bach's music.
