The New York Times wrote of Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s Bach, “… the music had a severe and wondrous beauty.” Aimard performs the first book of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, a set of 24 preludes and fugues in the 12 major and minor keys. Here, Bach takes an academic tuning exercise and creates one of the great keyboard works, renowned for its intellectual depth and technical brilliance.
