"Bach composed three sets of suites for clavier: six English Suites, six French Suites, and six Partitas. The English Suites are the earliest, dating mostly to Bach’s Weimar period. The French Suites, written in Cöthen between 1722 and1725, occupy the middle period, and the Partitas are the latest, written during Bach’s time in Leipzig and published as the first book of the Clavierübung in 1738. The French Suites are smaller, more modest works than the English Suites and the Partitas, more “gallant” and more idiomatic in style and execution—less dramatic and contrapuntal than the English Suites, less ambitious and sophisticated than the Partitas." - Vladimir Feltsman
"...clearly, one of the supreme Bach keyboard exponents of our time!" - Chicago Tribune
"...quite simply an amazing pianist!" - The New York Times
