Livres I et II / Pieter-Jan Belder, clavecin
Top Customer Reviews
- do not hesitate...... thinking the performance may in some way reflect the ridiculous price.
No, Brilliant Classics have done it yet again.
I have and love some 10 + sets of 'the 48' played on both piano and harpsichord.....and Pieter-Jan Belder is a very welcome addition.
His is not a name I knew ..... that is my loss.... for these are excellent performances.... clean, clear, thoughtful, lively, well sprung and thoroughly musical.
If you do not own a set of 'the 48' - then this is an ideal and very cheap way to get to know these timeless pieces.
If you do, no matter how many you may have the delight of owning, then this set will be and very worthwhile addition.
I still can not get over the price !
This set renders many older recordings into the "historical interest" category, such as the redoubtable Kenneth Gilbert set Bach - Das Wohltemperierte Clavier, bks. 1 & 2, to name but one example.
Despite regarding the harpsichord the way to go in these pieces, I enjoy Bach on the piano, too, and one can turn to Pollini Bach, J.S.: The well-tempered Clavier, Till Fellner Bach: Well-Tempered Clavier, and the decidedly archival Edwin Fischer Bach - Das wohltemperierte Klavier (this older EMI References having the best sound quality), to name but three glorious recordings.
Pieter-Jan Belder has made many good recordings (his Scarlatti "cube" Scarlatti: Complete Keyboard Works is entirely complimentary to the much-missed genius of Scott Ross [[ASIN:B0009MWAVQ Scarlatti - Complete Keyboard Sonatas]), but this is surely his best yet.
Do not hesitate, you really won't be disappointed!
I believe this is now THE benchmark performance on harpsichord of the complete well tempered clavier by the same performer.I still prefer Luc Beausejour for book 1 but Belder's book 2 is the greatest on disc.
Pieter Jan Belder has delivered consistently good performances regardless of which composers music he is performing and this recording cements his reputation as a great musician.Although i feel his account of book 1 is not all it could have been this 4 cd set is an essential purchase for his magnificent performance of book 2.
It's hard to believe that I paid less than £10 for four discs of music this good. I'm very happy.
