• “I was reared on Bach”, writes Daniel Barenboim in the sleeve notes to his recording of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier. “My father was virtually my only teacher, and he attached great importance to my growing up with Bach’s keyboard music.”

• Warner Classics re-releases Barenboim’s recent recordings of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier as a 5-CD set, recordings that unified critics in universal praise on their original release.

•Classic FM’s Julian Haylock spoke of “an uncompromisingly individual view that (has) the music leaping off the page…a great artist still at the peak of his powers.” John Kersey in International Piano wrote of “a remarkable return to form” and Bryce Morrison in The Gramophone considered that “his individuality and poetic richness erase all stale notions of pedantry or aridity.

• A cycle of great performances to sit alongside Barenboim’s legendary recordings of the Beethoven and Mozart sonatas.

• The release is supplemented with Barenboim’s own introductory essay, discussing his relationship to the music and the legacy Bach’s work has left for the modern world.
