Isabelle Faust hit the Classical charts earlier this year with her mesmerising recording of Beethoven and Berg with Claudio Abbado. She followed up with some welcome live appearances here in the UK, which included the Brahms' concerto at the Barbican with frequent collaborators Jiri Belohlavek and the BBCSO.

Isabelle's recordings have won prizes since her harmonia mundi debut in 1997 which earned her a Gramophone Young Artist Award. The afore-mentioned Beethoven-Berg has been awarded Gramophone Recording of the Month, Daily Telegraph Classical CD of the Week, Times CD of the Week, Classic FM Disc of the Week, Sunday Times CD of the Week, BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Month and CD Review Disc of the Week.

Now she returns to J S Bach for a second volume of what Andrew McGregor described in such glowing terms: "thereís some of the best-judged ornamentation Iíve heard in repeated passages. The recording is utterly self-effacing, in just the right way, and my only complaint is that the jobís half done...Iím impatient for the rest! Harmonia Mundi is the label, itís released this coming Monday, and the notes are excellent as well."
