ArtistsEleonore Buhler-Kestler (harpsichord)
This recording by the eminent harpsichordist Eleonore Bühler-Kestler is one of two to feature the Toccatas of J S Bach. The other album (CHA3042) covers BWV 910-912 (as well as the Fantasia and Fugue in A minor), whilst this one is devoted to the four Toccatas BWV913-916.
As a young composer, Bach demonstrated in his Toccatas for solo keyboard unusual ideas and a playful exuberance, which particularly appeals to Eleanor Bühler-Kestler.
After a break from performing of some 17 years following the death of her husband, the harpsichordist Eleanor Bühler-Kestler returned to the studio to record the works of J S Bach. Especially in her later years, Bühler-Kestler has worked tirelessly on 'her' Bach, loving its complexity and the music’s inner warmth, which has acted as a strong source of support throughout her life. Today she lives in Bayreuth, where until 2009 she was a lecturer in music at the university.
