Comments:Comments by Jan Hanford:

My favorite performances of Bach's keyboard works are all by Andras Schiff. The Partitas are particularly delightful. Graceful and elegant, Schiff's performance is the one by which I measure all others.

Strangely it is out-of-print in the U.S. but is available in Europe and at web sites like amazon.co.uk.
