The Long Ear

The profound and delightful Partitas, Bach's Opus 1, sparkle in Eleonor Bindman's brilliant performance. Her unhurried tempos bring out the twists, turns and quick modulations of the dance movements and preludes of this unparalleled set of six suites - famous in Bach's day and today for their vitality and depth. Bindman's spirited recording enriches the listener's experience by revealing the power and emotional nuances of the suites. One of Bach's favorite forms, the suite, or partita, incorporates lively, stately, graceful and stirring dances introduced by an opening movement - with a different title in each suite: Praeludium, Sinfonia, Toccata, Fantasia, Ouverture and Praeambulum. The scope of these works is vast - melody, harmony and counterpoint blending in sonorous combinations that surprise, fascinate and enchant. According to Bach's first biographer, J.N. Forkel, "Such excellent compositions for the clavier [keyboard] had never been seen and heard before. Anyone who had learnt to perform well some pieces out of them could make his fortune in the world thereby."
