Product Description & Reviews

Here's a delightful collection of Bach keyboard music offering sensational performances by one of the great Bach performers of our age, and at a rock-bottom price. The two most important pieces are the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, which still sounds very "modern" and shocking owing to its harmonic adventurousness, and the Italian Concerto. This last requires a word of explanation, since most people (correctly) think of a concerto as piece for solo instrument and orchestra. What Bach has done is to take the concerto principle--that of opposition between "solo" and "tutti"--and arrange it for a single harpsichord. In short, when the two hands play the opening theme together they are the "orchestra," and the right hand alone, or lightly accompanied by the left, functions as the "soloist." It's a dazzling musical tour de force. --David Hurwitz

ean: 0095115885925,
Martinu's Toccata e Due Canzoni is an amazing work--disturbingly dark in some places, opulently melodic and open-hearted in others. The first movement is one of the most purely fascinating ''perpetual motion'' pieces that you're ever likely to hear. ...
