Notes and Editorial Reviews

For this new release, pianist Annhelena Schluter invites the listener into her world of admiration for J. S. Bach as she performs Das wohltemperierte Klavier I. Annhelena says of this project: “The pedal point of holiness that underlies Bach’s music is mixed with our world like a recurring ostinato in normal everyday life. His musical message is one of comfort. My work as a musician is based on experiences, memories and a sense of purpose; not on mere knowledge. Johann Sebastian is my role model; his works are based on goodness energy, joy and patience… Bach’s Wohltemperiertes Klavier extends to the heavens, always upward-looking, beckoning us at every cadence, at every fresh start, in every pause, constantly reiterating the invitation.” Read more Annhelena Schluter has studied in Cologne, Wurzburg, and the United States. She continually performs in masterclasses, festivals and concerts across Europe and the USA. Not only is she an accomplished pianist, she has also won several writing competitions for her lyrics, poems, and songs, and she has founded several music ensembles. Read less
