Bach The Well-Tempered Clavier (Book I - BWV 846 to BWV 869)

To read

Sir András Schiff has been called "Bach's grandson" or "Bach's contemporary" and has chosen two iconic venues in Paris: the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées and the Philharmonie de Paris to play the first and second books of Johann Sebastian Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Today he remains an incomparable interpreter of the Leipzig Cantor, of whom Daniel Barenboim says: "It is ... in the level of his mysterious identification with Bach's music that he is unique. Without losing sight of the true style, he succeeds in making Bach's music contemporary, and for this he has my admiration and gratitude.
