Bernhard Klapprott — harpsichord

Johann Sebastian Bach
English Suites Nos. 1–3 BWV 806–808

Bach’s English Suites for harpsichord are currently rather in the shadow of better known cycles by Bach for this instrument. However, these virtuoso pieces are hugely demanding for interpreters – and definitely worth discovering. The dance suites were written around 1715 in Weimar and despite their annoying title belong to the Thuringian period of Bach’s creativity. Bernhard Klapprott can be heard as the interpreter in this concert. A notable harpsichordist and professor at the Weimar School of Music, he is currently recording the entire cycle on CD.
