HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Johann Sebastian Bach – French Suites BWV 812-819 (Hogwood)

I have this 2 LP set for almost 3 decades and is still as fresh as ever. Two most beautiful instruments, with tuning that really brings out the harmonic colors – particularly the gigue to suite #6, the e-flat minor trio to the suite BWV 819 and an alternate version of the allemande from the same suite. As a bonus, all 8 of the French Suites are recorded here (the two suites BWV 818 and 819 didn’t make the final cut to be in the six). Hogwood’s sense of rhythm and timing is always impeccable and appropriate for each dance movement, as is his lyricism. Over the years I have owned few other recordings of the French Suites, some of which I have enjoyed very much, but this set I return to time and again; these remain my gold standard.
