Comments:Jan Hanford said:

At last, Richard Goode has recorded the other three partitas. His earlier recording of Nos. 4, 2 & 5 is one of my favorites cd's. My feeling for this new recording is an enthusiastic "wow". This is very much how I like to hear Bach performed on piano. His nuances and expressive phrasing are extraordinarily beautiful. The Partitas have never sounded better.

Along with his other recording of the partitas, these are my most recommended interpretations on piano.
