Whatever the elusive truth may be regarding the ‘Englishness' of these 'Six Suittes avec leurs Preludes', there is no denying the imagination of the keyboard writing. Each Suite is headed by a Prelude of substantial proportions, followed by wonderfully varied dance movements, all perfectly suited to showcase the joyful brilliance of Richard Egarr's harpsichord skill.


"as a player I find personally the most pleasure in the earlier keyboard collections. The Toccatas, Well-Tempered Clavier’s Book 1, Brandenburg 5 and the so-called ‘English’ Suites seem to delight in purely physical keyboard pleasure and imagination that is often absent from the later works...This is a true cycle of pieces – one of Bach’s first and certainly one of his best. The care with which Bach has planned their path, and the skill in creating a musical journey to a most fearful place is astonishing. The way to redemption and salvation after this journey is perhaps shown by the key sequence of the Suites: A – a – g – F – e – d. These six notes clearly describe the Chorale tune “Jesu, meine Freude”. I recorded the Suites in order. I certainly felt that it helped me make the musical path clearer. My trusty Katzman harpsichord was a glorious partner, its quill plectra wonderfully flexible and responsive in giving life and colour to this most imaginative music." Richard Egarr
