Bach: Partitas 1, 3 & 6
Piotr Anderszewski (piano)

[ Erato / Warner Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Thursday 21 November 2002

Editor's Choice (Gramophone Magazine Jan 2003)

"Piotr Anderszewski is a pianist who likes to offer up the unconventional when convention is expected. He is a Pole who doesn't play Chopin, he also plays Bach on the piano with - thank goodness - no qualms about choice of instrument. This selection of three of Bach's six keyboard partitas, works that take the composer's use of the traditional dance forms to their very pinnacle of expression, finds him balancing pianistic technique with a truly probing intellectual force."

"I know that Bach is going to be a part of my life as long as I am involved with music - I could play and record Bach for the rest of my life... I had to record this disc!"
For his first all-Bach recital on Virgin Classics Piotr Anderszewski joins the great interpreters of Bach on the piano in brilliant and authoritative performances of three keyboard Partitas.
