One of the worlds best-loved artists, and a longtime proponent of Bach on the modern piano, Murray Perahia has been hailed as one of the composers - most rewarding interpreters both live and on disc.
For his debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon, Perahia turns to the six French Suites works that are at once delicate, profound, tender and joyful, and all suffused with the rhythmic vitality of the dance. Perahia produced a series of award-winning recordings of Bachs keyboard works in the late 1990s and since then Bach has become his benchmark. Bachs French Suites are new to his recording catalogue. It is his first release in the past 5 years and first release for DG.
