This well-known set of Suites is rarely gone about by most harpsichordists because of its distinctive virtuosity. Its popular title refers to only one manuscript – the one of Johann Christian Bach, who noted “fait pour les Anglois” on it. After all it’s maybe a homage or musical reply on the 1713 publication of François Couperin’s Premier Livre de Pièces de Clavecin.
Pascal Dubreuil, after his highly acclaimed recordings of the first and second parts of the
Clavierübung (RAM 0804 & 1001) offers us with his interpretation of these Suites an impressive reading of highest artistry.
