4.0 out of 5 stars Very, very good., 13 May 2004
P. SIMPSON "nucaleena" (North Yorkshire, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bach - Goldberg Variations, BWV988 (Audio CD)
This is a very good set of the Goldbergs. Perahia has clearly thought long and hard about the work and his whole interpretation sounds integrated and thoughtful. He is clearly involved in the music so this is no mere "academic" exercise. Moreover, his sound is lovely, clear and rounded, - no hint of the sewing machine here - and the recording Sony have given him is true and natural, if a bit weighty here and there. On the whole, everything about this is well judged and interesting, even if it doesn't refresh and commune to quite the same extent as (IMHO) the old Kempff recording (also on the piano).
