Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

This is the best playing of Bach keyboard music on original instruments in the catalog, and it comes at a bargain price. The way Igor Kipnis plays the English Suite is easily worth the price of the disc, as he gives every movement a character of its own, thrills us with his virtuosity, and displays his imagination with his embellished repeats. The Italian Concerto doesn't offer the same opportunities for repeats, but Kipnis still gives us imagination and great sensitivity. The remaining pieces are played on the soft-voiced clavichord, an instrument that normally can't be heard across a small room. Don't turn the volume up, just save this music for late nights in the country and let it whisper to you. --Leslie Gerber

As The Master Himself would have played it 6 Jun 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is one of the treasures in the catalog, pure and simple. I admit that I rarely listen to the harpsichord pieces anymore, but that is not due to any defiency in their artistry or recording, but rather the (to me) greatly superior intimacy and sonority of the clavichord. It was this very disc that introduced me to the clavichord, back in the late 60's, and it has never been surpassed in the decades since, despite the noble efforts of Messrs. Pinnock and Troeger, et al. The Little Preludes and the 2 Fantasias are well worth the price of admission here. To those who decry Mr. Kipnis for "excessive ornamentation" I can only say that, regardless of academic arguments to the contrary, the ornamentation here is exquisite and absolutely flawless. This performance could indeed be an auditory treatise on how to ornament Bach. Suffice it to say that I own thousands of recordings, and this particular treasure is one I return to again and again. No lover of the great Bach, nor of music in general, should be without this recording. Period. Even my kids love this CD. Honestly, it is as close to perfection as anything I have ever heard. When you hear it, you too will lament the tragic fact tht Mr. Kipnis died before he could record more Bach. Buy it; you won't be sorry.

Read the fine print: this is an Amazon CD-R produced on demand 19 May 2010
By Robert De Groff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this disc thinking that I would receive--as advertised--a Sony Classical Audio CD of Igor Kipnis. Instead I received an Amazon-manufactured CD-R disc with NO liner notes, NO recording information and incorrect track listings.

The "Product Details" on the Amazon page for this item do not mention the fact that this disc is produced on demand nor that it is a CD-R. About halfway down the page, under "Editorial Reviews," there is a single line, "This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media." While most newer CD players will have no problem playing the disc, many older players will not recognize the CD-R format. (My vintage 1989 Technics player does not.)

The music itself is great (hence the three stars) but Amazon could surely do a better job at alerting customers that this is NOT the original release of this disc--it is a cheap, on demand substitute--surely not worth the price that Amazon is asking.
