Format: Audio CD
A stunning recording of the Art of the Fugue of JS Bach from a young and extremely talented Bach interpreter, pianist Ramin Bahrami. Nearly 78 minutes of outstanding music that is inspiring and seducing, a real joy to listen to again and again. The recorded sound is very high with a beautifully natural piano. Interesting liner notes in Italian, German, English and French. Totally recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars attributions 26 Jun. 2010
By B. V. Cleavin - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As is the case nowadays, reviews and curatorial decisions are greater and lesser expansions of the performers craft. They form interpretations of interpretations. So it is with attributions - or 'spot the influence'. The CV notes provide testimony to Bloser, Weissenberg, Schiff, Levin and lastly Rosslyn Turek. Who could argue with the performing lineage? It only becomes less noteworthy when Gould is omitted - especially when Bahrami is a pianist acting at times as something of a direct conduit to the composer in his interpretation of their scores as in the manner of Gould with his performances of Bach. Such a thing was strongly evident in Bahrami's Catania debut where one perhaps aurally detected a more direct homage to the Canadian's 'sing along' rattle and hum.
Don't get me wrong. The haunting repetitions are intact - leaning towards the romantic perhaps rather than the more metronomic baroque.
