Overview

Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier [2008 Recording]

Ten years ago Angela Hewitt recorded a version of The Well-Tempered Clavier that dazzled the critical world and recordbuying public. Now, fresh from her Bach World Tour — in which she performed the complete Well-Tempered Clavier from August 2007 until the end of October 2008 in 58 cities in 21 countries on six continents — Angela has made an entirely new recording of this most iconic of keyboard works.

In a revealing and personal program note, Angela explains her reasons, both artistic and emotional, for this momentous creative decision. She speaks of the ‘new-found freedom’ that she discovered in her later performances, and especially her use of Fazioli pianos, “whose luminous, powerful, and also ever so delicate sounds opened new worlds to me and allowed my imagination to take flight.” From the Label
