Bach: The Six Keyboard Partitas BWV 825-830

Huguette Dreyfus, harpsichord

Eminent French harpsichordist, Huguette Dreyfus, made a set of recordings of Bach’s Keyboard Partitas for the Denon label in the early 1980s " they were instantly cited as amongst the best interpretations on harpsichord but have remained unavailable for well over twenty years. It is astonishing that more of her recordings are not currently in the catalogue considering the profound influence she has had on future generations of harpsichordists and the contribution she has made to a better understanding of the music written for her instrument.

‘Dreyfus's fine technique and natural musicianship make me favourably inclined towards her set............Dreyfus, undoubtedly the best served by recorded sound, provides warm but definitely 'no-nonsense' readings with plenty of musical insight.......... my own preference lies with the ingenuous playing of Huguette Dreyfus.'
Nicholas Anderson, Gramophone
