Comments:Marie-Noël Laporte, ATMA said:

The scope of the means they put to use, their combination of old and new elements and their sheer expressive range explain why, despite their complexity, the Partitas of J.S. Bach have continued since their first publication to have such widespread impact, as is shown by the important place these works occupy in the repertoire of keyboard players. Mireille Lagacé presents here an intense and mature vision of these masterworks.

L?étendue des moyens mis en ?uvre, la combinaison d?éléments anciens et nouveaux, le registre d?expression étonnamment étendu expliquent que, malgré leur complexité, les Partitas de J.S. Bach aient connu de leur publication à ce jour, un rayonnement particulier, comme en témoigne d'ailleurs la place que ces ?uvres occupent à juste titre dans le répertoire des instrumentistes à clavier. Mireille Lagacé nous livre ici une vision intensément mûrie de ces chefs-d'?uvre.
