Notes & Reviews:

One of the world's best-loved artists, and a longtime proponent of Bach on the modern piano, Murray Perahia has been hailed as one of the composer's most rewarding interpreters both live and on disc. Deutsche Grammophon is proud to announce that Mr. Perahia has signed to the yellow label. For his debut recording on Deutsche Grammophon, Perahia turns to the six French Suites, works that are at once delicate, profound, tender and joyful - and all suffused with the rhythmic vitality of the dance.

Perahia produced a series of award-winning recordings of Bach's keyboard works in the late 1990s and since then, Bach has become his bench mark. Bach's French Suites are new to his recording catalogue. It is his first release in the past 5 years and first release for DG.
