3.0 out of 5 stars More Barenboim than Bach... 17 Aug 2011
By Elpenor
Format:Audio CD
...and that's not altogether a bad thing. Barenboim certainly has very firm ideas about how the pieces should go and he executes them perfectly. However, his Bach is a very acquired taste - highly Romantic and blurred with pedal, contrapuntal lines often get lost under layers of pedalling. I'd say his Preludes are overall a success, but the Fugues are often a disaster, with exaggerated dynamics, portentously slow tempos and pretentious ritardandos in the end. Barenboim is at his best in the rare occasions that he plays them straightforwardly, like the Book 1 G Major for example. Sound quality is excellent - beautiful and realistic piano sound.

But, if you want a Romantic Well-Tempered Clavier I think Angela Hewitt's second recording is more successful than Barenboim.

Two great keyboard virtuosos collaborating over the bridge of three+ centuries. Daniel, once again, proves to us his span of genius and sincerity as he enlightens us about this monumental work of J.S.B. Set a match to a candle and see the light!

Bach makes me happy when skies are gray. Daniel Barenboim at the piano delivers Bach in all his complexity and with great appreciation for the balance and the beauty of the composition.

Simply beautiful in this modern version. I am not sure Bach really meant this work to sound so elegant but I am delighted. Only matched by Andras Schiff's version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danny Comes Home 9 Sep 2012
By John Weinshel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've never been much of a Barenboim fan. His recordings with Jackie Du Pre made me want to scream 'It's not about you, Danny; it's about her.' But these are the most introspective, modern, sensitive, and mature renditions of the WTC I know. The elephant in the room is Glenn Gould, whose Bach recordings were all I ever thought I needed in this life. But the wonderful and unexpected cliche is that life does not stand still. Could anything possibly have been left to be said about this music? Barenboim's answer is a joyous and profound exploration that arrives at its destination as if there were no other way.
