J. S. Bach: 4 Keyboard Suites

François Dumont
6 novembre 2015

François Dumont embarks on a journey at the heart of Johann Sebastian Bach’s piano works. The four dance suites brought together here form an imaginary cycle of variations on the letters of the composer’s name, B.A.C.H, including a plurality of characters, atmospheres and expressions. The French pianist offers a dynamic vision of the Cantor’s work. Demonstrating a deep understanding of its polyphony, his magnificent and colourful playing unleashes the most thrilling dancing energy. (c) Artalinna
