Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ursula Dutschler studied with Jorg Ewald Dahler in Bern, with Kenneth Gilbert at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and with Malcolm Bilson (fortepiano) at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. In 1989 she won the Paris International Harpsichord Competition, and in 1991 the first prize for fortepiano at the Erwin Bodky International Competition in Boston. Ursula Dutschler performed the Bach Toccatas to overwhelming applause at the Wigmore Hall in London on May 11, 2000. The following citation is taken from a review by Geoffrey Crankshaw in "Musical Opinion" (Summer 2000): "The harpsichord recital given by Ursula Dutschler at the Wigmore Hall on May 11 was, quite simply, a revelation. She elected to play the entire collection of Bach keyboard Toccatas, Read more BWV910 to 916 and how splendid was the result. These works are among the greatest pieces in the harpsichord repertoire, improvisatory, each is different from its neighbor and used by the composer as a means for profoundly personal meditation in the opening preludes and for dazzling intellectual feats in the concluding fugues. Ursula Dutschler is an exceptional musician, commanding a superb technique, which she places wholly at the service of the music. This she reveals in its glory by virtue of fine rhythmic command, lucid articulation and phrasing which allows the music to speak with easy eloquence. While every piece received a wholly individual performance I was struck especially by the sheer eloquence of her performance in what is perhaps the finest of the set. She must, and the sooner the better, come again!" Read less
