Notes and Editorial Reviews



With this recording, Piotr Anderszewski returns to Bach’s English Suites after more than 10 years. In 2002, The Sunday Times spoke of “Bach playing of the highest order,” enthusing that: “His playing throughout is wonderful, laying out Bach’s contrapuntal writing with a clarity and subtlety of touch that removes these works far from the realms of technical exercises. His fingers dance in the Courantes and Allemandes, and positively sing the melodies of the sublime Sarabandes.”
