Ten years ago Angela Hewitt recorded a version of The Well-Tempered Clavier Book I which dazzled the critical world and record-buying public. It was followed shortly afterwards by Book II which was similarly received. Now, fresh from her Bach World Tour—in which she performed the complete Well-Tempered Clavier from August 2007 until the end of October 2008 in 58 cities in 21 countries on six continents—Angela has made an entirely new recording of this most iconic of keyboard works.

It's rather amazing today, when recordings of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier practically fall of the shelves, to recall just how unusual it was back in the 1960s for a pianist to undertake to record this amazing work. It's probably fair to say that until Glenn Gould got his fingers around it, Bach's music was used for teaching purposes more than anything else. What Gould proves in this essential set is that Bach is decidedly not just a threat to hold over the head of budding pianists but a joy to listen to. One of Gould's very greatest recordings.

For this new release, pianist Annhelena Schluter invites the listener into her world of admiration for J. S. Bach as she performs Das wohltemperierte Klavier I. Annhelena says of this project: “The pedal point of holiness that underlies Bach’s music is mixed with our world like a recurring ostinato in normal everyday life. His musical message is one of comfort. My work as a musician is based on experiences, memories and a sense of purpose; not on mere knowledge. Johann Sebastian is my role model; his works are based on goodness energy, joy and patience… Bach’s Wohltemperiertes Klavier extends to the heavens, always upward-looking, beckoning us at every cadence, at every fresh start, in every pause, constantly reiterating the invitation.” Annhelena Schluter has studied in Cologne, Wurzburg, and the United States. She continually performs in masterclasses, festivals and concerts across Europe and the USA. Not only is she an accomplished pianist, she has also won several writing competitions for her lyrics, poems, and songs, and she has founded several music ensembles.

There's nothing at all wrong with Maurizio Pollini's 2009 performance of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. The Italian pianist's intellectual lucidity, interpretive clarity, and technical virtuosity are apparent in every prelude and fugue, and his probing insights and penetrating analysis inform every note. However, there is almost nothing right with the sound quality of the recording. The piano sounds too distant, making it hard to hear precisely what Pollini is doing, but oddly, the ambient sound is too present, making every extraneous noise too loud. One should not hear the pedals being pressed and lifted, much less the clatter of the hammers and the twanging of the strings above the sound of the music. Worse yet, one can hear what sounds like every breath Pollini takes nearly as loudly as every note he plays. These are all grievous flaws that should have been eliminated, and their presence fatally undermines the brilliance of Pollini's performances. A reengineered version of these performances would be most welcome, but the present recording is so flawed that it virtually destroys Pollini's playing.

This cycle of preludes and fugues composed by Johann Sebastian Bach ranks tremendously high in the world of music. It is not just one of the immortal masterpieces of the world music literature; it is an encyclopedia of polyphonic art, a handbook for life, and an inexhaustible source of delight. Sviatoslav Richter said, Whenever I set to the Well-Tempered Clavier, I always get consumed with a desire not to exclude any of the sides for the sake of one narrow and dogmatic position. I am confident that Bach can be played in different ways, with different articulation and different dynamics, as long as the whole is preserved and the performance is convincing.

Qualche settimana fa recensivamo il primo libro del Wohltemperierte Klavier eseguito all’organo da Daniele Boccaccio. In quell’occasione si ricordava come il termine “klavier”, utilizzato da Bach per indicare lo strumento da usare per l’esecuzione, sia in realtà molto generico, indicando qualunque strumento a tastiera: clavicembalo, clavicordo, fortepiano, organo, e quindi anche ciò che nel 700 ancora non esisteva, il pianoforte.
