About

“Bach saved my life… You always feel in his music that God is present somehow.” This is not empty declamation. It is a deep confession of harpsichord player Zuzana Růžičková, a survivor of the inconceivable horrors of the Nazi concentration camps. She always felt that Bach’s music was one of the things that helped her survive.

Zuzana Růžičková gave new life to Bach’s music by persistently promoting the use of harpsichord (as opposed to commonly used piano) in performing Bach repertoire in concert. She was the very first person to initiate the gigantic project of recording the complete harpsichord concertos composed by Bach.

Zuzana Růžičková understands the deep inner order and the hidden emotionality of Bach’s music so well that her recordings of his works remain no less inspiring at the present time.

Recorded in Prague at the Rudolfinum, 19–23 December 1966 (Concertos Nos 3 and 4), 27–28 June 1967 (No.6), 30 June 1967 (No.7), 1 July 1967 (No.5), 14 and 19 September 1968 (Nos 1 and 2)
