Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

On this new release, pianist Charles Owen presents a very personal interpretation of the Six Keyboard Partitas by J. S. Bach- works which are amongst the greatest literature for the keyboard. "I have only once in my life listened to all six Partitas played on a single evening, and the sense of a journey, of being on a pilgrimage, was extraordinary," says Owen regarding this set of compositions. With this release he adds to his acclaimed discography which already includes Faure's Nocturnes and Barcarolles. "A class above the rest... His performances are underpinned by an unwavering musicality that is enhanced by close attention to the score." (International Piano) "Exemplary. Classic. Spellbinding. And enthusiastically recommended." (Fanfare)

Gramophone Magazine, December 2016
Technical polish, intelligent musicianship, well-reasoned tempi, and scrupulously executed ornaments characterise Charles Owen's Bach Partitas, along with a rounded and focused sonority largely informed by finger power and hand balance, with a little help from the sustain pedal.
