Wonderful playing of the French Suites, and finally re-issued at budget price. I couldn't get a hold of Hogwood's set, which is the only other French Suite disc to include BWV 818 and 819a. I love the playing. The Anglaise from Suite in B minor is good and interesting. I liked Suites 5 and 6 as well.
