Product Description

The twin sisters Güher and Süher Pekinel are internationally recognised as a duo of exceptional artistry and magnetism whose performances demonstrate extraordinary musicality, keyboard command, unanimity of style and execution. Born in Istanbul of mixed Turkish/Spanish ancestry, the twins studied at the Paris Conservatoire, the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and the Juilliard School in New York where they counted Rudolf Serkin, Claudio Arrau, Adele Marcus, Yvonne Loriod and Mieczyslaw Horszowski among their teachers. Discovered by Herbert von Karajan in 1984, they appeared at the Salzburg Festival and subsequently embarked on a busy worldwide career giving recitals throughout Europe, the U.S. and Japan and performing with leading orchestras.
With his ‘Fifth Brandenburg Concerto’, Bach liberated the harpsichord from its traditional role as an accompanying instrument and gave it a prominence never even hinted at before. He thus, single-handedly, gave life to the keyboard concerto. Though in the ‘Fifth Brandenburg’, it shares the limelight with the violin and flute, the harpsichord is clearly the dominant member, its virtuosity underlined by an extended solo cadenza. Having given birth to the keyboard concerto, Bach began to compose for two, three and even four harpsichords. These works were written as vehicles for himself, his sons and very occasionally his pupils. Of the concertos that are now known to exist, all but one (BWV 1061) are arrangements.

Bach sings 26 Aug. 2012
By Bollermann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are lots of recordings of Bach's harpsicord concertos. With big orchestras (Karajan), small orchestras with old instruments or modern equipment. Most of them have their special benefits and are more or less interesting to hear. This one is from its appearane nothing special: A medium sized chamber orchestra of some reputation, the harpsicords replaced by Steinway Grands. But this recording sings Bach and no other one comes even close to this. Especially the slow movements take you way beyond baroque rigidity. Start listening with the Andante in BWV 1060. The applause for this interpretation goes to the Pekinel twins. They achieve a depth of dialogue which can not be heard very often. And in this recording it is preserved perfectly.
