After Book 1, which was acclaimed by the press and listeners alike, Deutsche Grammophon is now presenting Part 2 of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier with harpsichordist Trevor Pinnock. Pinnock, conductor, harpsichordist and early music icon, reveals in this recording his deeply personal, lifelong fascination with one of Bach's most artistic works: "As I play these pieces, I feel that Bach uses them as much for himself as for audience wrote. For the performer of these Preludes and Fugues, each interpretation of these works is a stepping stone on a path of learning as we follow the great Bach on his own quest for the infinite."
Recorded on a David Way harpsichord based on an original by Henri Hemsch, Pinnock achieves a perfect balance of tonal beauty and structural penetration. "The attraction of the harpsichord is that you have to coax music with language, music with soul from this very simple instrument" - Trevor Pinnock's claim promises an informed and entertaining interpretation of Bach's contrapuntal masterpiece. "A grand master of historically informed performance practice."
