ArtistsDaniel Lewis (piano)
As the CD's title reveals, Daniel Lewis has chosen to perform these exquisitely crafted works on the piano rather than on the harpsichord, and through the sonorities of the piano he presents this music in fresh guises, shedding new light on Bach's extraordinary work.
The enduring appeal of Bach lies partly in the fact that fresh interpretations of his music are always possible. The Well-Tempered Clavier is so intricate, so finely honed, yet not prescriptive in its nuances, enabling each interpretation to bring something different to the listener, who in turn will experience the music in a unique way.
For Daniel Lewis, Bach's music is the epitome of beauty and joy, and he communicates that sense of joy in radiant performances throughout this disc.
As a pianist, Daniel Lewis immersed himself in music of many eras before feeling compelled to return to his first love, Bach, and focus the greater part of his attention on interpreting that master's music. This CD represents the fruits of that dedication to Bach's output.
