Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Charles Owen presents a very personal interpretation of the Six Keyboard Partitas by J. S. Bach - works amongst the greatest in the literature for the keyboard. With this release he adds to his acclaimed discography which already includes Faure’s Nocturnes and Barcarolles.

-----

REVIEW:

Technical polish, intelligent musicianship, well-reasoned tempi, and scrupulously executed ornaments characterise Charles Owen’s Bach Partitas, along with a rounded and focused sonority largely informed by finger power and hand balance, with a little help from the sustain pedal.
