Description

This recording by the leading baroque music director and keyboard specialist Ton Koopman is devoted to the Six Partitas for Harpsichord, BWV 825-830, by J.S. Bach. Koopman is recognised throughout the world as an expert in the interpretation of Bach's music.

As a harpsichord player and director of the group he founded, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, Ton Koopman has been a regular guest at leading concert halls in Vienna, London, Berlin, Brussels, Madrid, Rome, Salzburg, Tokyo and Osaka. Between 1994 and 2004 he conducted and recorded all the existing cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, and this series received many international awards, among them the BBC Music Magazine Award in 2008.

In August last year He released a recording with Catherine Manson of Bach's six sonatas for harpsichord and violin BWV1014-1019, and in recent times has released critically acclaimed recordings of the harpsichord works of Dieterich Buxtehude as part of a cycle of his complete works.
