Martha Argerich Bach: Toccata in C Minor, Partita No. 2, English Suite No. 2 Limited 180gram Vinyl LP


Johann Sebastian Bach: Toccata in C Minor, BWV 911; Partita No. 2 in C Minor, BWV 826; English Suite No. 2 in A Minor, BWV 807: Selected as one of Gramophone’s “50 Great Bach Recordings”, The C Minor Toccata, the Partita No.2 and the English Suite No.2 belong to the few but much-praised Bach recordings of Martha Argerich and now returns to vinyl to mark 333 years since the birth of the great composer. “This recital … has an extraordinary authority and panache. Argerich's attack in the C minor Toccata [is] a classic instance of virtuosity all the more clear and potent for being so firmly but never rigidly controlled. Here, as elsewhere, her discipline is no less remarkable than her unflagging brio and relish of Bach's glory. Again, in the Second Partita, her playing is quite without those excesses or mannerisms that too often pass for authenticity.” -- Gramophone (2010). 180g pressings by Optimal, mastered from original sources // Sleeves present artwork adapted from the original artwork
