Disc one plays three Partitas in major and disc two plays three in minor. All works are played very beautifully. The first one begins with an overture. Zhu Xiao-Mei says the fourth Partita makes a tremendous opening gesture. I compared Gigues of the fourth Partita played by Glenn Gould, Angela Hewitt and Zhu. Gould plays it best, Hewitt plays it beautifully and Zhu plays it new. I think Zhu plays all Partitas fresh and new, so that I found again Bach's 6 Partitas were fun.
