J. S. Bach: Clavier-Übung I- Six Partitas, BWV 825 – 830

$23.99 (3CD-Digipak)

Bach’s six Partitas, BWV 825-830, formed the composer’s first published opus, the initial installment of a massive four-volume compendium called Clavier Übung (roughly: Current Keyboard Practices). They are the culmination of Bach’s three major harpsichord suite collections (the others being the English and French Suites), and remained famous among keyboard players after publication as a set in 1731, despite the relatively small number of sales of the printed edition. Here the six Partitas are performed by Peter Watchorn on a large German-style harpsichord and pedal harpsichord. This is the latest volume of Musica Omnia’s Complete Works for Harpsichord by J. S. Bach.
