Notes & Reviews:

Friedrich Gulda recorded Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier in the yeras of 1972-1973. This was the high-and endpoint of the collaboarton between Gulda and the German "sound-sorcerer" Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer. A Steinway Grand Imperial was brought into the MPS stuidoe specifically for Gulda's use and were placed to his exact specifications so the piano's sonority could be optimally captured. Bach composed this cycle of works that play through all twnety-four major and minor keys in 1722. The set is also produced from the original master tapes with no correction of sound dynamics. It includes a high quality hot foil stamped booklet of thirty-five pages of original accompanying material (labels, booklets, and Gulda's comments) plus reissue texts. This new release appears on the anniversary of the painist's 85th birthday.
