Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this recording, John Paul continues in his historic series of Bach performed on the lautenwerck Peau de Buffle stop. The lute-like sound of gut strings gently brushed by soft leather quills displays both the intimacy and virtuosity of these masterworks. This time Paul performs Bach’s English Suite 4 — BWV 809 and Partita 4 — BWV 82. About John Paul’s last installment (Volume Four), the British classical review site Music Web International wrote "...these are accounts to return to and appreciate as fully representative of Bach's infinite creativity." Paul's series of Bach on lautenwerck is fast becoming the most exciting take on the master's works for clavier in the last fifty years!
