Performances of the Bach keyboard partitas are not uncommon but interpretations by insightful and erudite performers are always worthy of attention. Musicologist and harpsichordist, Dr. David Ponsford, made these recordings in 2000. He performs on an instrument by Andrew Garlick after Jean-Claude Gujon. The booklet includes a substantial and perceptive essay by Bach authority Professor Peter Williams.
