Recorded: 28-Jul-2004 live St Thomas's Church Leipzig

"Overall, it's difficult not to be inspired by work like this. Loussier's arrangements, as Schwab puts it, 'give back to Baroque music, with its tendency towards rhythmic uniformity, a vitality and spontaneity that makes it sound fresh and alive to our modern ears.' And, aside from viewing the live performance, it doesn't get much fresher than on a DVD like this. A beautifully filmed, beautiful performed and beautifully presented concert, I truly cannot recommend this enough." - Robert Gibson, Musicweb International

Bach, J S: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books 1 & 2

Bach, J S: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books 1 & 2


Andrei Gavrilov (piano), Joanna McGregor (piano), Nikolai Demidenko (piano), Angela Hewitt (piano)

“In February 2000 BBC Wales and Euroarts Music co-produced Bach's complete Well-TemperedClavier for television, dividing the work between four very different pianists filmed in four visually distinct venues. Rather than impart a concert performance continuity between the pieces, the directors treat each Prelude and Fugue as a separate entity in terms of lighting, camera angles, placement of the piano, extramusical imagery (kept to a minimum), as well as the pianists' wardrobe and hairstyles.
Collectors familiar with Andrei Gavrilov's romantically tinged, pianistic Bach French Suites won't register much surprise as to how he treats Book 1's first 12 Preludes and Fugues. Contrapuntal rigour takes a back seat to melodic nuance and tone colour in his languid, slightly sedate way. It's interesting how his pianism contrasts with the stark visual impact of Walsall's Art Gallery. Conversely, the gothic, shadowy detail Whiteside conveys in Barcelona's Güell Palace differs from Joanna McGregor's leaner propulsion throughout the rest of Book 1.
While she and Gavrilov use the printed score, Nikolai Demidenko and Angela Hewitt play Book 2 from memory. The plangent clarity of Demidenko's Fazioli concert grand stands out in Nos 1-12 (the other pianists perform on Steinways).
Several tempo choices are wayward, such as an over-fast and flippant F minor Prelude.
However, his linear clarity in the difficult-to-balance C sharp major Prelude and rhythmic swagger in the D major Prelude greatly impress.
Of the four pianists, Angela Hewitt commands the widest variety of articulations and inner dynamics, together with her finely honed ability to follow Bach's lines through to their final destination without sounding the least bit studied.
Cogent examples include the long-lined refinement of the G sharp minor Prelude and Fugue, the G major Prelude's lilting, conversational trajectory, and the B major Prelude's delicate yet firmly centred fingerwork. In the B flat minor Prelude the camera zooms in on Hewitt from above, allowing one to observe how she achieves her superior legato through fingers and hand balance alone. Aside from optional titles, the menu offers no bells and whistles to supplement the programme, but the audio engineering boasts ample warmth and presence.”

Bach, J S:

The Art of Fugue, BWV1080

Keller Quartet

Cello Suite No. 1 in G major, BWV1007

Cello Suite No. 5 in C minor, BWV1011

Anner Bylsma (cello)


“What a curious idea! In a recording of Bach's Art of Fugue are interspersed bits and pieces of works by the contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag. It is not as if we get the entire Art of Fugue. The performance is bits of this and bits of that. "This concept may seem strange at first glance, not least because it places works by the most disparate of composers not just side by side but weaves them together." Strange indeed, and, in my opinion, a total failure. The interposition of the two radically different types of music is far too jarring to be of interest. And, unfortunately, the only way to listen to all of one or all of the other is to skip tracks; the DVD offers no possibility (which would, in fact have been simple) of listening to only the Bach or only the Kurtag.” MusicWeb International

Bach, J S: Cello Suites Nos. 1-6, BWV1007-1012

Bach, J S: Cello Suites Nos. 1-6, BWV1007-1012


These glorious performances of possibly the most challenging and inspiring pieces in the cello repertory were recorded in the Abbey Church at Vezelay in France and released on CD in May 1995. Here at last was one of the true greats of the instrument finally taking on the ultimate challenge for a cellist and delivering a recording that met every expectation and more of both public and press.

“The Basilique Sainte Madeleine's stern, ornate and majestic setting provides the perfect visual and acoustic context for Rostropovich's fluid, commanding solo Bach. His valuable spoken prefaces to each suite include casual demonstrations at the piano and organ.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2008

“Rostropovich's performances are masterly and all-involving, drawing distinctions between each work in his spoken introductions, although one can choose to hear the music without the commentaries. Unsurpassed and unsurpassable.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition
