Notes & Reviews:

Johann Sebastian Bach's Partitas, BWV 825-830, were published between 1726 and 1730, and were the first of his works to be published under his direction. They were among the last of his keyboard suites to be composed, and are by far the most technically demanding. A Russian born American pianist, Sergey Schepkin is based in Massachusetts, and is a leading authority on the interpretation of Bach's work. This release is Schepkin's second recording with Steinway & Sons. "Mr. Schepkin's technical skills and innate virtuosity are integral in bringing the Baroque embellishments and ornamentation to his Steinway piano and to the ears of a modern listener." (AXS) "Russian-American pianist Sergey Schepkin leaves you in no doubt why Bach is at the heart of his repertoire." (Gramophone)
