“András Schiff and Bach: Clarity and Spirituality”

Fortunate we are in Los Angeles that András Schiff has honored us with his inimitable performances of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier Books I and II.

“So Liltingly Musical”

First, the thought of yet another version of the Well Tempered Clavier in my collection seemed not merely unnecessary, but truly pointless. But how wrong I was, and how delighted I am with this magnificent performance and production. It is clear, crisp, and unslurred by the artificial colorings of the pedal. The musicality of it comes through definitively and liltingly. It stands head and shoulders above the other recordings I have. I will never come to the point, as Andras Schiff has, of being able to play this set of four CDs from memory(!), but I will definitely be listening to it far more than the others I have. A lifetime of practicing it has paid off stunningly for Andras Schiff. This is a real accomplishment, and makes this precious achievement of Bach’s all the more eternal. His feet may be flat on the floor, but his fingers are dancing.Read more

“Outstanding performance by Schiff; less than optimal recording.”

Schiff’s artistry on the keyboard is legendary and I couldn’t ask for a better performance. The thing that kept me from giving the recording 5 stars is that the engineers left no space between the tracks, causing each piece of music to run into the next. There really needs to be a short respite between pieces. I will have to re-record these discs and insert a two second gap between the pieces.Read more
