When Glenn Gould was asked whose Bach playing he liked, he always replied "Rosalyn Tureck's" and this disc proves him right. These two discs contain the six partitas by Bach, which caused a shock when they were published during Bach's life. (the partita's were one of the few works Bach published during his lifetime) Never there was written such great music for keyboard instruments ! Miss Tureck has dedicated her entire career to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and we can only be extremely thankful she did, because she has gained an insight in, and a deep and profound understanding of the music. She gives every note its own meaning in the story that is told by Bach, and treats every measure, line or sentence as necessary parts of the architecture of the piece. She has the unequalled gift of creating a specific and appropriate sound for each voice in the polyphonc web of voices. (I can't understand how she manages to do so but she does and the result is astonishing!) On top of that, Tureck never forgets the original intention of these pieces, namely a collection of dances (gavottes, allemandes, sarabandes and so on) Her recordings spring to life and is full of emotions. Yes, her playing is full of emotions : to all those who always found Bach's music too cerebral and lacking deep emotions, listen to this. Don't miss the opportunity to obtain this marvellous disc !
