Hi-Res Booklet
Even though Vladimir Ashkenazy has been on the “piano market”. for over half a century, this recording of Bach’s French Suites is a brand new one : March 2016 and April 2017, thus it is not some kind of reprint or re-issue, but the fruit of a long maturation. Over the past twelve years, the pianist has increasingly turned to the music of J. S. Bach, starting with the two books of the Well-Tempered Clavier, which he recorded in 2005. Working essentially from the Peters Urtext Edition, with a few suggestions of alternative readings from other sources, Ashkenazy makes clarity of sound his goal: “It was a privilege to do more Bach, and I tried to have a sound as clear as possible. The music is transparent, and Bach’s own instrument was terribly clear, so this has to be taken into account in pieces where there are lower bass lines, and a more involved texture. I use very few ornaments and don’t think of the sound of the harpsichord – the piano is what we have today. What I try to do is play on what we have today, and make the combination of voices as clear as possible”. This will hopefully put an end to any – useless and sterile anyway – discussion regarding whether Bach can or even should be played on anything else than the harpsichord, or be “allowed” onto modern or even ancient pianos.

Even though Vladimir Ashkenazy is most often celebrated for his brilliantly virtuosic interpretations of Romantic repertoire, his skills in playing works of the Classical era are just as worthy, as proved by this 10-disc set from London of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's piano concertos. These performances span a period from 1966 to 1988, capturing a youthful and vigorous Ashkenazy playing and conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra from the keyboard, in approved Mozartian fashion. All of the keyboard concertos are here, including the official 27 concertos for piano and orchestra, the Concerto for two pianos in E flat major, K. 365, the Concerto for three pianos in F major, K. 242, as well as the two Rondos K. 382 and K. 386. Ashkenazy's elegant playing has been highly praised by critics and placed on a level with his esteemed contemporaries Murray Perahia, Daniel Barenboim, and Alfred Brendel, all past masters of Mozart's primary medium of expression. Because these recordings are either analog or digital, according to their dates, there are some noticeable differences in the quality of sound, but London has taken pains to master all the recordings to even out the volume levels and to adjust the tone of the performances.
