He has an excellent sense of phrasing, and conveys all that one needs of the dance-like character in each movement. The solemn preludes, especially those of the C major and D minor Suites, come off beautifully, and there is plenty of contrast in timbre.

The Jean-Max Clément cycle has much to commend it. He’s a communicative player, and whilst some of his tempi are generally on the slower side than we are used to today, the music-making has a spontaneity, leaving the favourable impression of music freshly composed and being created on the wing. He draws a big, rich, full-bodied sound from his instrument, and his varied vibrato endows his playing with a wealth of tonal shadings. He’s not averse to the use of portamenti to obtain a particular expressive effect. Nor is he afraid of applying some tasteful rubato to enhance the line. I love the way he captures the sombre introspection of Suite No. 5, gauging to perfection the ebb and flow of the melancholy Sarabande. To the faster dance movem
