Toccatas French Suites 4-6
Format: COMPACT DISC
Lorenzo Ghielmi took more than six years before presenting the second installment of his recording of the French Suites, but it was worth the wait. In Suites No. 4-6, he juxtaposes two of Bach's most exceptional harpsichord toccatas. Ghielmi once again proves to be one of the most interesting and knowledgeable Bach interpreters of our time. The Italian organist and harpsichordist, Lorenzo Ghielmi, is organist on the Ahrend organ (1991) at the Basilica di San Simpliciano in Milan, where he performed from 1992 to 1994 the complete organ works of J.S. Bach. He gives concerts throughout Europe, Japan and the USA as an organist and harpsichordist. He has made many radio and album recordings. He plays with his instrumental ensemble La Divina Armonia and in duet with his younger brother Vittorio Ghielmi (viola da gamba and harpsichord). In France, he received the Diapason d’Or for his recordings of Bruhns and Bach. He also played organ & harpsichord in the first recordings of Il Giardino Armonico.
