One woman and a piano…

I first heard Angela Hewitt playing Bach on the radio, and immediately sought out a recording. This is what I ended up with, and months later it is still revealing new riches. The music, of course, is vast and rich, and Hewitt breathes life into every note. This is not the cold mathematical playing that some advocate for Bach (and that his music survives), this is Bach that sings and dances, contemplates and exults. Try this out if you want to hear how one slender woman, a piano, and a long dead composer can collaborate to create an entire world.

  1. Whatever, darf ich auf meine Notiz vom 15.1.2013 ver-
    weisen. Wann kommen Sie dazu, den Post Angela Hewitt
    Bach Partitas zu prüfen?

    Gruß Trottar

    ——edit by Rachmaninov——-

    Hi Whatever, Trottar didn’t know, that you cannot german. He asks, concerning his first msg from jan. 15th, when you start to check the Bach/Hewitt post. He means, the speed of the music is wrong…

    Cheers.
    Rach

  2. Die Partiten von Bach sind klanglich unbrauchbar.Sie klingen, als wenn die falsche Geschwindigkeit des Plattenspielers eingestellt wurde.Bitte überprüfen.
    Gruß Trottar

    1. Hallo Trottar….;) Sie müssen sich gedulden, bis Whatever wieder kommt (sehr beschäftigt zur Zeit). Das ist sein Post.
      Hatten Sie nun mehr Glück mit FF, nachdem klar ist, dass alles funktioniert?
      Die einladung für den anderen Blog können Sie löschen; die Site wurde gestern Abend dicht gemacht :( …..ob sie wieder irgendwoanders on line gehen wird, weiss ich nicht.
