For example, Andras Schiff's Decca recording of the English Suites won numerous awards, yet Schiff makes some odd interpretative choices in certain movements, relative to the harpsichordists. This is especially true in the Sarabandes, where the artist often thickens the musical argument with broken chords in the left hand (the fourth, track 4 in the second CD, is particularly lovely).

Double II, Bach, J S: English Suite No. The preludes are met with a “Toccata”-like attitude, which sounds very appropriate and sparkling with impressive finger work.
