Bach French Suites Bwv 812-817

Vladimir Ashkenazy
Description:
As one of the most renowned and revered pianists of our time, Vladimir Ashkenazy has won acclaim for his penetrating insight and superlative technique. As an artist, his creative life encompasses a vast range of activities and he continues to offer inspiration to music-lovers across the world. His brand new album of Bach’s six French Suites continues Ashkenazy’s extraordinary journey through the major keyboard works of JS Bach.

Ashkenazy remarks, “It was a privilege to do more Bach, and I tried to have as clear a sound as possible. The music is transparent, and Bach’s own instrument was terribly clear, so this has to be taken into account in pieces where there are lower bass lines, and a more involved texture. I use very few ornaments and don’t think of the sound of the harpsichord – the piano is what we have today. What I try to do is play on what we have today, and make the combination of voices as clear as possible”.
