It's too bad that the previous reviewer uses Glen Gould as the standard to measure Bach on the piano. When it comes to the Partitas, a much more accurate measure would be Angela Hewitt, Bernard Roberts, Vladimir Feltsman and the great Sviatoslav Richter. It is in that company that Freddy Kempf's recording belongs. Buy it and you will become a fan of this gifted pianist (try especially his Schumann recording). This is how Bach should sound on a piano: clear, lucid, poetic and without much pedal. This is almost as good as Koroliov's Bach playing.
