"J.S. Bach's music has accompanied me since I first started playing the piano. I have always been powerfully drawn by the polyphonic genius of this composer, by his mind as both architect and improviser, and I have continually presented his works in my concerts." - Fabrizio Chiovetta

This programme, carefully chosen from amongst the hundreds of works by the composer, starts first with the French Overture in B minor: a monumental, complex work, rarely performed in concert. It was during a recital by Grigory Sokolov that Chiovetta fell in love with this pièce. He next chose one of the fundamental pieces that marks the culmination of the suite genre: the sublime Partita No.1 in B flat major. He concludes with the English Suite No.4, with the wish of restoring some of the honour it deserves.
