J.S. Bach - French Suites IV-VI and Toccatas - Lorenzo Ghielmi
Het tweede volume van de Franse Suites voor Klavecimbel van Bach, brilliant vertolkt door de Italiaanse klavecinist Lorenzo Ghielmi.
Of all of the German composers of the time, Johann Sebastian Bach was the best of those who could imitate the styles of French and Italian composers; he forged his own personal style in so doing, and this style was destined to become a universal model. If we examine his compositions, we can clearly see which works are in the Italian style, such as the Toccatas, and those that are characteristic of the French style, such as the Suites for harpsichord in particular. Nobody better then Lorenzo Ghielmi is suited to perform these works with the right stylistic insight, having devoted his life to research and performing the works of Bach and his predecessors.
