About

Walter Gieseking’s Bach interpretations have long been celebrated and are still praised as being modern and contemporary. His legendary 1950 broadcasts, later released on the Heliodor label, included many of Bach’s important works such as The Well-Tempered Clavier, Partitas and Inventions. For the first time, Deutsche Grammophon presents all these recordings, newly remastered, in one original-jackets collection.

A 7-CD original-jackets collection, newly remastered, presenting all of Walter Gieseking’s 1950 Bach broadcasts for Radio Saarbrücken.

A number of these recordings have their first-ever CD release on Deutsche Grammophon or their first international release on Deutsche Grammophon.

Includes a bonus recording of Schumann’s Piano Concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker and Wilhelm Furtwängler (1948).

40-page booklet with new liner notes by Gieseking scholar Frank R. Latino, previously unpublished photographs and excerpts from Walter Gieseking’s autobiography presenting his ideas on interpreting Bach.

“No one, according to some, had ever played Bach like Gieseking, and they rhapsodized over an amazing technique, a style that was as fluent and easy as it was immaculate.” - Time Magazine

“In any appreciation of Gieseking, his feeling for the beautiful sound must have first mention ... His palette of half tones was more subtle and more sensitive than that of any of his contemporaries” - Gramophone
