5.0 out of 5 stars The New Bach, 16 Nov. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: English Suites 1-3 (Audio CD)
This is stunning in my opinion. I am a Glenn Gould, Murray Perahia, Helmut Walcha and Simon Preston fan. That tells you where I'm coming from. Walcha is the top of the top. If you're still with me read on: Martin Stadtfeld is the next Bach genius. He has extraordinary rhythmic tightness and discipline, call it an even touch. This main feature of his playing really allows him to reveal the structure and meaning of Bach. No one little phrase stands out more than the whole... therefore one gets a global view... something like a whole picture of the composition which he plays. I find his expressive warmth totally satisfying; it certainly speaks to me, yet his rhythmic nerve take the music a whole degree higher, somewhat in the direction of Walcha. I advise all Bach lovers to pay attention to this wonderful German Pianist... he has Bach in his veins. Now I'm not saying this is the only way of playing Bach, and I'm not saying you'll be instantly converted... but it didn't take long for me to realise what a precious musician we have in Martin Stadtfeld. Please may he record much more! Unreserved recommendation
