Product description

Amazon.ca

Recorded in 1980 and reissued in the Deutsche Grammophon Originals series, this disc just preceded the nightmare years in which "purists" tended to consider the performance of Bach on the modern piano a crime punishable with instant death. Nevertheless, a number of the world's finest "thinking" pianists not only championed Bach consistently but have continued to produce interpretations of a depth, spirituality and power that put many players of the "right" instruments to shame. This is one such disc and it is only a pity that there is not more of it (at 50 minutes it mirrors the length of LPs). Martha Argerich presents intense, minor-key Bach: fierce but pure, finely argued and rhetorical yet never losing the rhythm of dance; expressive but contained and articulated with beautiful clarity. Her intensity is completely compelling from the very first note of the C minor Toccata onwards: she demands, seizes and holds attention at every moment. Her personal vision displays the emotional darkness at the heart of these pieces without any suggestion of mannerism or gimmick.--Jessica Duchen
