4.0 out of 5 stars The old master, 9 Feb 2006
This review is from: Shostakovich: 24 Preludes & Fugues, Op.87 (Audio CD)
With this collection Ashkenazy has expanded his repetoire even further, the only description can be that of a pianistic Chameleon. After a long abscence fromt the recording studio his same dynamicism and brilliant musical understanding still remain. I have to disagree with another reviewer's remarks that he had lost some of his dynamicism, he his playing a style that befits this 20th century parody of Bach's Well-Tempered Klavier. Although Shostakovich modelled this set on the work of Bach, we are left in no doubt by typiaclly Vivacious melodies and contemplative harmonies that the composer has taken the form of Prelude and Fugue and made it his own without betraying the traditions of the composer he revered so much, Bach
