Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

On this recording, Goverts plays Bach & Chopin's Preludes on an original fortepiano made by the famous French company "Erard" in 1850. Bach's music had a calming effect on Chopin's sensitive psyche. Whenever he managed to force himself to give a public recital, he prepared not by practicing pieces he intended to play, but by playing Bach's music instead. He compared the structure of Bach's work with "perfectly drawn geometrical figures in which everything is at its place and no line is superfluous."
