Ashkenazy Vladimir

Catalogue # 4782163

Vladimir Ashkenazy (piano)

Since Vladimir Ashkenazy’s debut with Decca in 1963, with more than 200 albums as pianist or conductor, he has never recorded the Six Partitas. The ‘master musician’ (Sydney Morning Herald) infuses a lifetime of pianistic and philosophical discernment into the Six Partitas of Bach.

This album will become an obligatory purchase for Bach and Ashkenazy fans: a summit-meeting of masters.

Review

I have to come out and say it: I am a huge fan of Vladimir Ashkenazy and this new recording has solidified my respect. His beautifull musicinship has taken what could have been a very dry recording and made it sing! Bach’s six keyboard partitas are presented in a double-disc edition, each a testament to Bach’s genius, as well as to Ashkenazy’s musicality and strong technique. The liner notes include a small copy of the original title page of the partitas when first published by Bach in 1726. There’s also a translation, which reads that these partitas have been written ‘for the soul’s delight’ - nothing could have been truer.
