4.0 out of 5 stars Baroque Bach at his most severe and clinical best, 15 Dec 2001
I have listened to much Bach keyboard music, and attempted to play some of it; but this is for the enthusiast who possesses that link with mathematics, which seems to heighten the appreciation of the Baroque composer generally. The mood and expression are emphasised by Gould's dry and brittle approach. I have only given four stars, not because of any lack of execution or fault of style, but because I do not think this CD is for the casual listener.

5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating a period and the life of the artist within it, 15 Nov 2001
this book is unique in a way, because , not only does it portray the artist and her associates and artistic milieu, but manages to make that description illuminate a complex period of French history, which has rarely been so well described in history books. This because M/s Shennan brings out the personalities of the politicians and others in the period, because they interact with the artistic circle in Paris especially, but also wherever they were in France. the lively style makes the medicine go down quite happily! more art
biographies like this welcome at any time!
