200 page colour book + 6 CD's in a luxurious boxed set. Our idea in presenting this set of CDs with its accompanying book was to propose a hedonistic experience, centred on Johann Sebastian Bach, and including a rich array of texts, music and illustrations, sources above all of pleasure for the music lover. And this, not with any instructive aim, but rather as an invitation to rediscover Bach, the man and the musician; perhaps also to break with the austere, neo-Romantic image that still survives today. These six discs, bringing together a variety of performances and instrumentations, make no claim to represent a definitive view of Bach's works; this explains, for example, why some are present in several 'forms', while others are absent. It is our hope that everyone will savour the sensuality, spirituality and sheer genius of Johann Sebastian Bach!
