BACH, J.S.: Harpsichord Works - Suites, BWV 818a, 819a, 832 / 6 Little Preludes / Preludes and Fugues (Häkkinen)

J.S. Bach was one of the most renowned keyboardists of his day, and he left a rich legacy of music for harpsichord originally intended for instruction and ‘spiritual refreshment’. This recording of mostly lesser-known works includes several early examples which afford fascinating insights into the young composer’s experimentation with counterpoint, harmony and form. They are all compelling, emotionally powerful works in their own right, with virtuoso content and an expressive range that easily matches that of Bach’s more famous keyboard pieces.


Bach, Johann Sebastian
