Bach, Johann Sebastian

Partitas nos.1-6, BWV825-830 (complete)


David Ponsford (harpsichord)


Performances of the Bach keyboard Partitas are not uncommon but interpretations by insightful and erudite performers are always worthy of attention. Musicologist and harpsichordist, Dr David Ponsford, made these recordings in 2000. He performs on an instrument by Andrew Garlick after Jean-Claude Gujon. The booklet includes a substantial and perceptive essay by Bach authority Professor Peter Williams.

Dr David Ponsford is a harpsichordist, organist, musicologist and conductor, and took lessons with Kenneth Gilbert and Gustav Leonhardt. His recordings include the complete Bach violin sonatas with Jacqueline Ross, and the complete Handel recorder sonatas with Alan Davis, as well as several solo harpsichord CDs. He has directed courses in Performance Practice and Notation & Editing at Cardiff University, and he continues to give courses in Baroque music at Madingley Hall, Cambridge University. In 2021 he was appointed to the teaching staff at the Royal Academy of Music.
