I love music.

I write about the music I like and have purchased for the benefit of better understanding it and sharing my preferences with others.

Bachcast Episode 18: Lute Suite, BWV 997

Show Notes

This suite is organized into four movements:

  • Prelude,
  • Fugue,
  • Sarabande,
  • Gigue with Double

The writing, especially in the Prelude and in the Gigue, suggest an instrument different from the harpsichord. Yet, in the three recordings I highlight in this episode, it’s the keyboard (as an instrument, as the player’s tool) that wins out for me as the most affective performance.
