Podcast: Pianist Philip Edward Fisher talks about recording Handel’s Great Suites for Keyboard

Pianist Philip Edward Fisher talks about his new Naxos recording of the first four “Great Keyboard Suites” by George Frideric Handel. In this podcast, Fisher describes some of the challenges in preparing this music, about playing it on the piano rather than the harpsichord for which it was likely composed, and about why the music of J.S. Bach has become such a regular part of the piano repertoire, while Handel’s music is often forgetten.
