Fernando De Luca has recorded by Partita!

The outstanding harpsichordist, Fernando De Luca, recently recorded my Partita #1 in E minor and uploaded it to Youtube.  You may catch this wonderful interpretation here:

I am profoundly grateful to Fernando and somewhat in awe of his performance.  He had wonderful ornamentation throughout, and I was impressed by what he did in the Allemande, which he took at a slower tempo than I had originally imagined.  I also loved the improvisatory reprise he offered at the end of the Ricercare!  I intend to thank the harpsichordist with a keyboard partita dedicated to him at some point in near future.
