Format: Audio CD
I have really been enjoying this set! The sound was much better than I expected from Membran. Tureck is amazing in this 1952/53 recording of Bach's WTC!!! Highly recommended and indeed a bargain! If you want better sound you should get the more expensive J.S. Bach: Das Wohltemperierte Klavier Book 1 & 2. If you enjoy Bach's music and Tureck's soft skillful interpretations you should definitely get this latter version.

Feel free to explore other Tureck recordings such as Great Pianists of the 20th Century - Rosalyn Tureck and Great Pianists of the 20th Century: Rosalyn Tureck I - Bach: Partitas, BMV 825-830. These two double albums are amazing samples of her work.

What a beautiful performance. Every note not matter how fast the run has it own weight. Such a sensitive and yet correct interpretation that you feel somehow closer to the great humanitarian that was Bach. It has helped friends of mine to wonder at life and relax when things were bad for them. It is such great music that it transcends are small lives and troubles and yet brings us close to each other. Rosalyn Turek I salute you ... in heaven. MagG

Beautiful Performance, Terrible Sound 15 Feb. 2014
By Lawrence Clint - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful rendering of Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, a work of extraordinary range and importance. However, the recording stems from 1951/1952, and the sound quality is poor. While there is no hiss, the sound is muffled and distorted. A great pity!

The definitive performance and now without hiss! 15 Mar. 2014
By Joseph Kline PhD, MD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am copying much of this from my review of another remake of the 52/53 performance.

I feel a kinship with Rosalyn Turek. When I first studied with Joseph Battista at Indiana University in 1964 after my Junior year in high school, I would hear her name come up often. She and Mr. Battista both studied with Olga Samaroff at Julliard. Eugene List was another of their classmates. A few years after Mr. Battista's untimely death, I had the good fortune to hear Rosalyn Turek in concert at a Battista Memorial Fund concert. Afterwards, I went backstage to meet up with Mrs. B who introduced me to her. She was incredibly gracious and there was an air of royalty about her. She was distinguished by her scholarly study of Bach yet her playing was both definitive as well as a genuine act of love.

This mono recording of the WTC, unlike the one I reviewed earlier today that is degraded somewhat by hiss and time, is a clean remaster with no hiss. The sound is good for its time, but the performance remains superb. As with any performance, there are always quibble one can make about the occasional tempo or occasional stiffness of a phrase. But make no mistake. These are as perfectly performed Preludes and Fugues as you will ever hear. This is music that you listen to in the quiet of the night and sit transfixed on a performance that takes you inside the mind of Bach. Very special, indeed. I can't describe adequately how mesmerizing Turek's performance is. This is not the race or the finish line. It is a journey that you will travel again and again. The accompanying booklet gives notes by Albert Schweitzer in German and English.

We are fortunate that someone recognized the importance of this performance and finally improved the sound. The elimination of hiss leaves the recording to be simply enjoyed. If you love the WTC, then you must have Turek's performance. You will never regret it.
