 The recordings by Benjamin Alard of Bach’s complete works for keyboard have been met with critical acclaim by reviewers the world over. In this fourth volume, Alard continues to explore the Weimar period, known as that of Bach’s ‘early mastery’.
 After À la française, we turn to Italy, where the Vivaldian concerto reigned in Venice. The young Bach created here a wonderful space of freedom between the transcriber and the improviser. For “if transcription is a matter of freedom, it is also a matter of powerful imagination: each piece on this recording transports us into a Venetian universe that fascinated Bach as much as it inspired him,” as Benjamin Alard demonstrates on three exceptional instruments, including a magnificent 1702 harpsichord by Mattia De Gand, preserved in Treviso and recently restored.
