Format: Audio CD
Jando's interpretation seems very fine to me, as he weaves his way through Bach's vast structure with clarity and aplomb. It's a restrained performance, with no forced 'pianism' or any attempt to mimic a harpsichord. The controlled touch provides a beguiling ebb and flow of musical tension, but no exaggeration. The style has a feeling of unforced correctness.

Each movement is given its own character, without resorting to inappropriate romanticism. My favourite interpretations of Bach piano music are Perahia's performances of the keyboard concertos. He shows slightly more verve, excitement and character than Jando here, I feel. But then he has the ASMF in top form accompanying him, and the concertos are more straightforward show pieces. It's nice having both. Jando's 'straighter' performance provides an interesting contrast.

Perahia's scintillating performance made me question if I should look for another interpretation of "the 48". Jando is not mentioned in the Penguin guide, which hands out "keys" to five "big names". Looking for more discrimination, I visited Gramophone's on-line database, and found two glowing reviews of Jando's performance, placing him above several Penguin recommendations.

In summary, I'll be sticking with Jando as my key baseline for this work. It's refreshingly devoid of any mannerisms or eccentricities (I didn't notice the humming!) He has a feeling for period style, perhaps even more so than Perahia. His playing is firmly rhythmical, without stiffness or anachronistic rubatos. He uses intelligent tempos, and his ornaments sound right. I certainly enjoyed the performance and am left wanting to listen again.

This is a very good performance of these seminal works. Jando isn't as well known as some of his illustrious rivals but you won't go far wrong with these performances and they come at a bargain price. The recording is also excellent, the piano is there with you in the room on a good hifi.

PS I didn't buy this from Amazon - sorry guys.

Lovely recording. It's great value. I bought as Naxos recordings are ok and better value that Deutsche G ones, for example.
