- Kenneth Weiss (Harpsichord)
Notes & Reviews:
This is Kenneth Weiss's third Bach recording for Satirino, and his third recording on a historic instrument from the Paris Musee de la Musique collection, this time the Ruckers-Taskin. Recording The Well-Tempered Clavier is of course a landmark event in any artist's career, and Satirino is very proud to present this new recording. Richard Langham Smith has written liner notes that are of interest to the well-informed and yet still comprehensible to the novice, taking into account recent research into the historic context, the flux of styles, and the all-important question of tuning. The cover image was commissioned from young German photographer Moritz Kerkmann and the sound balance is the inimitable work of Jiri Heger. The booklet also contains a detailed presentation of the Ruckers-Taskin harpsichord (1646/1780), and all the texts are presented in English, French, and German.Notes & Reviews:
