joanna-macgregor-bach-french-suites

Joanna MacGregor is again warmer than her competitors, and is placed here in a more resonant acoustic, which heightens the fluidity of her playing. She is generally swifter than Hewitt in terms of tempi, and her use of the sustaining pedal creates a quite different effect in many pieces. That gorgeous Sarabande in the French Suite No.1 for instance, becomes something more vocal in its expression,…..a beautifully pellucid set of French Suites. I commend this release very highly indeed.
