Notes & Reviews:

Dmitri Shostakovich composed his Preludes and Fugues after attending the celebrations in Leipzig in 1950 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Johann Sebastian Bach’s death. On the concert scene, this led to the increasingly frequent practice of playing Bach’s Preludes and Fugues from the Well-Tempered Clavier in direct proximity to Shostakovich’s counterparts. Here Bernd Glemser does not follow an encyclopedic strategy, but developed a program which takes a dramaturgically motivated path and highlights atmospheric contexts.

"German pianist Bernd Glemser is not the first artist to combine the Bach and Shostakovich preludes and fugues on disc: Olli Mustonen did so in the two double CD sets from RCA and Ondine... Glemser's approach on this single disc is quite different. He has chosen excerpts based on a structural similarity between the themes used by each composer... In short, a lot of thought has gone into the programming, and the pianist brings the same rigor to his performance... I have had increasing pleasure from this disc with every hearing. Strongly recommended." -Fanfare
