JS Bach’s English Suites have been overshadowed by his later works for keyboard, but in this new recording from Richard Egarr, they are shown to be enchanting and inventive works.

The track we’re offering for download is the Prélude from Bach's Suite No. 6. Egarr performs the works on the harpsichord on a recording on the Harmonia Mundi label.

The disc was our Instrumental choice in the March issue of BBC Music Magazine and our critic George Pratt said: ‘Prélude No. 6 is huge and Egarr’s energy and sustained vitality is breathtaking… Egarr displays an extraordinary tonal range, from harp-like resonance to transparency. The best harpsichord recital of these Suites on disc.’
