The French Suites have a special place among J S Bachís keyboard works. Besides containing music as profound and poetic as any Bach wrote, their textures have a transparency and sparkle that reflects a move towards the galant style fashionable among Bachís contemporaries.

In this, the third instalment of Peter Hillís acclaimed Bach series, Hill has chosen to follow the suites with his own completion of Mozartís Suite in C, K399. With Bach and Handel as his models, this work epitomises Mozartís fascination with Baroque music.

Hillís celebrated return to the studio with Delphian four years ago continues to reap rich artistic rewards, with a ĎDiapason díOrí and a recent Gramophone Award nomination for his premiere recording of Messiaenís rediscovered La Fauvette passerinette.

Here in Bach, too, his abundant energy and passion are deeply informed by a lifetime of scholarship.
