Christophe Rousset is a briliiant French harpsichordist and has all the buoyancy and verve needed to keep these French suites bouncing in the air ... it is the dance side of Bach that is to the fore here, offset by plangent and searching sarabandes, rather than his contrapuntal style, and the sound of the harpsichord is very vibrant and big. Rousset's rhythmic vitality is second to none: a zesty pleasure indeed, full of the exuberance of lemon groves on a hot day or the iridescence of spouting water.

So far the best JS Bach's French Suite recording I've heard (I've listened to several). Clarity, interpretation, emotion and algorithmic purity with the true virtuoso skill make it amazing.

An excellent reference recording, Rousset's tempi leave plenty of room for the music to breathe, and the timbre of the Ruckers original used here is absolutely enchanting. Although the tempi of the allemandes are entirely appropriate, listeners accustomed to a more rapid clip may take issue. I found most of the slower dances to be quite affecting, especially the Sarabande in the d minor suite. Rousset also makes good use of registrastion changes to showcase this amazing instrument, and it helps a bit with the music as well, although personally I could take or leave most of them. The album is beautifully packaged with lots of great photos and good notes - as it had better be for the astronomical price.
