Notes & Reviews:

Zhu Xiao-Mei ranks among the finest pianists of our times and is one of today's most renowned interpreters of J. S. Bach's music. The Goldberg Variations stood at the beginning of her international career, representing the "greatest musical encounter" of her life. "It is a universal piece of music that knows no frontiers"; this is the message of her playing being celebrated in concert halls around the world. For the first time ever her unique interpretation has been captured on DVD. The live recording was produced at her critically acclaimed Leipzig Bach Festival concert in St. Thomas Church, J.S. Bach's final resting place, in 2014. Michel Mollard's documentary "The Return is the Movement of Tao: Zhu Xiao-Mei and the Goldberg Variations" complements the concert recording. Mr. Mollard accompanies the pianist to concerts as well as to the reclusiveness of the French Alps, offering insights into the mind of a fascinating artist and her vision of the Goldberg Variations.
