"...His refined playing of these brilliant works makes this a set that will please all lovers of the harpsichord..."

Steve Arloff - MusicWeb - 24 July 2003
 


"On this outstanding double-CD album the virtuoso harpsichordist Paul Parsons plays works by Johann Sebastian Bach. These include his brilliant French Overture, French Suites (Nos. 1 to 6) and the wonderful Prelude & Fugue in A minor. The French Suites probably acquired their nickname from being much lighter in style than his other suites for keyboard instruments, and these are outstanding performances of some of the composer’s most delightful and rewarding works"
