Bach Fantasias and Inventions,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bach : Fantasia Inventions, Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue (Audio CD)
This is the second time I have bought this CD. When I went to play it after a recent review, I found it had mysteriously disappeared. Since I must have this performance, I have bought it again. I believe that this was Angela Hewitt's first recording for Hyperion, and I had not heard of her until I first heard an extract from the recording. I have bought all of her Cds that have appeared since. She appears to be able to combine the best elements of the harpsichord (without its annoying jangliness) with the clarity of the modern piano. The performances are impeccable. The Inventions are all too often heard as training pieces for budding pianists. Here they are heard as music. I can't wait for her next release.
