About

All of the important interpretations by the “high priestess of Bach”. The basis of all piano music - in one budget 10 CD box - including The Well-Tempered Clavier, Goldberg Variations, the Partitas, the Italian Concerto, the French Overture, the Capriccio in B flat major, and many more.

“You play it your way, I play it Bach’s way”, with this legendary statement directed at Wanda Landowska, Rosalyn Tureck pointed out the appropriate moral rigor indispensable to her own interpretation of Bach - in the spirit of Bach aficionado Glenn Gould, an admirer and devotee of Tureck. This great American piano player’s recordings of the Well-Tempered Clavier and the Goldberg Variations still stand as references today and are included in this compilation of 10 original albums from the years 1952 to 1962, next to other piano works by the great baroque composer - the Partitas, the Italian Concerto, the French Overture, the Capriccio in B flat major, which together with Beethoven’s sonatas form the basis of all piano music.

Revered in the US as Bach’s “High Priestess”, the maestro’s works were at the centre of her artistic and pedagogical activity. Her unconditional authority in terms of the interpretation of Bach’s works can easily be recognized in these recordings.
