J.S. Bach: Works for Harpsichord Volume 1

Richard Lester has been at the centre of early keyboard music for fifty years with a professional career that began in 1966. His teacher, George Malcolm generously promoted his debut recital at the Wigmore Hall, and from that followed concerts including the Royal Festival Hall Purcell Room, master-classes and recitals at Dartington International Summer School, Bruges Festival and the Bath International Festival. As a Fellow of the London College of Music, he has given many organ recitals in King’s College, Cambridge, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Cathedral, Ely Cathedral, Coventry, and in 2013 he was invited to perform in St Mark’s, Venice, and Bergamo Cathedral…

Discography Press Review

‘Another Goldbergs, yes, but this is measured yet magisterial playing – Richard Lester lets the playing do the talking to great effect.’

BBC Music Magazine (OC) ****

‘This recording, dedicated by Richard Lester to his teacher George Malcolm (1917-1997), makes a fine marker for such an anniversary… stands at the vanguard of something that will stand proudly alongside other such huge projects by Richard Lester, including the entire Scarlatti sonatas, Frescobaldi and numerous others. Lester’s numerous followers will need little persuading to acquire this Bach programme, and they will surely not be disappointed.’
