Of the three great collections of keyboard suites that Bach produced, the English Suites were probably written first - around 1720 at Köthen. While we may marvel at their imposing architecture, along with their lyricism unfettered by formal constraints, or indeed the tender grace of their galanteries, what really makes these pieces unique is their power, their grandeur and above all their unbridled virtuosity, which together make them a landmark in the keyboard repertoire. The works are performed here by Paolo Zanzu. "Having studied with the greatest performers and teachers, Paolo Zanzu is now one of the major figures in the harpsichord world in Europe and in the world. [...] He is an inspiration as a teacher and a concert artist." (France Musique)
