Overview

Vladimir Ashkenazy brings a unique perspective to these works on this CD, his first recording of these particular pieces. Since winning second prize in the 1955 International Chopin Competition, Ashkenazy has spent the last 55 years impressing audiences from the piano and increasingly from the conductor's podium. This musical duality influences his work as a pianist and as a conductor by enriching each with a cross-pollination of perspective. This all-new recording, following the acclaimed 2006 release of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I, is a summit meeting of masters finding both Bach and Ashkenazy at the heights of their individual powers.
