Album Summary

>Bach, Johann Sebastian : Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2, BWV 870-893
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Over the course of his career, Christophe Rousset has consistently excelled - both as a harpsichordist and as the director of Les Talens Lyriques. Following on several critically acclaimed albums of keyboard music for Aparté, Rousset turns to Bach's great musical testament: the Well-Tempered Clavier. Written 20 years after the first volume, the second book of this collection contains the musical and spiritual legacy of the composer. Rousset performs on a 1628 Ruckers harpsichord, one of the best examples of its kind in the world, which has been preserved in the château de Versailles since 1946.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The performances are ideal: the top of my list includes the Prelude in C, which sounds much like an unmeasured French prelude; the genial, ricercar-like Fugue in B, and the pastoral F-sharp Prelude. The choices are all plausible and I can easily live with them.
