Notes and Editorial Reviews
In Book I (1722) of his Well-Tempered Clavier, J.S. Bach set off on an unprecedented passage through all the tonalities available to him on the keyboard. Using the tuning that research suggests Bach himself advocated, Richard Egarr completes his acclaimed project with this inspired reading of Book II, in which Bach, after a decade-long genesis, revisited his ambitious scheme to produce another monumental collection.
"This is a thoughtful, well-recorded performance of one of the great monuments of Western music, on an instrument for which the composer conceived it, played by a dexterous, sympathetic, and well-informed musician." -- Phillip Scott, FANFARE [reviewing
