William Christie

It’s well known that Bach never left Germany, but what would have happened if he had visited Paris during his lifetime? Would he have met Rameau? The French Baroque suite was a very popular form in Germany and could encompass a great variety of music, as demonstrated in these pieces, from the famous Air on the G string to the magnificent Chaconne from Les Indes galantes, and from the grace of Campra to the boisterous Rejouissance which ends Bach’s fourth suite.
