“It’s not inappropriate that Alto have coupled Gould and Schiff in Bach; as the quotation on the back of the CD reminds us, Schiff was impressed by Gould’s playing which he found so different from everyone else’s. Schiff’s own Goldbergs are cut from very different cloth...but the coupling is still apt.” MusicWeb International, March 2012

Fabrizio Chiovetta (piano)

This programme, carefully chosen from amongst the hundreds of works by the composer, starts first with the French Overture in B minor: a monumental, complex work, rarely performed in concert. It was during a recital by Grigory Sokolov that Chiovetta fell in love with this pièce. He next chose one of the fundamental pieces that marks the culmination of the suite genre: the sublime Partita No.1 in B flat major. He concludes with the English Suite No.4, with the wish of restoring some of the honour it deserves.

“Geneva-born Fabrizio Chiovetta presents three contrasted suites in this Bach recital. He’s particularly compelling in the least frequently performed of these, the B minor French Overture, which sets off with a grandeur that conveys Bach’s arching lines and imposing dotted rhythms, then finds a pleasing physicality in the faster-moving fugal writing; in the Sarabande he responds to Bach’s questioning lines with a gentle intimacy.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2016

“His style in Bach is fleet and dry, with absolutely no cobwebs of pedal, his way with embellishments, whether Bach’s or his own, is deliciously light-fingered, and he uses his left hand in a way that is exceptionally light.” The Irish Times, 28th July 2016
