Notes & Reviews:

SanCtuS Recordings is pleased to announce the new release of the Six Partitas for Harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach (BMW 825-830), performed by the celebrated harpsichordist and Landowska pupil Rafael Puyana, who died in Paris on 1st of March 2013. These previously unpublished recordings of one of the major harpsichordists of the XXth Century, widely considered to represent the artist's musical testament, have been eagerly awaited by many since their mention in important papers and magazines, such as The New York Times, the Gramophone and the Guardian. Besides Puyana's magisterial interpretation of the Bach Partitas, the 3CDs hardcover digibook of 152 richly illustrated color pages (in English, German and French) is a world premiere recording of J. S. Bach played on the unique German harpsichord of Bach's time, the famed three-manual harpsichord of 1740 by Hieronymus Albrecht Hass, thus offering further insight in regards to the search of authentic sonorities and interpretation. The magnificent instrument is richly illustrated in the booklet, which also contains an authoritative text on the repertoire and the instrument by Rafael Puyana as well as a bonus track.
