Bach's Tonal Soundscape / J.S. Bach ; Ian Holtham, piano.
Ian Holtham's unique approach to Bach's monumental Well Tempered Clavier provides the listener with the opportunity to hear the preludes and fugues organised by key rather than the traditional and more artificial order by volume.
By performing the related works from both Books I and II together, Holtham demonstrates Bach's extraordinary tonal landscape in an easily manageable way and so reveals the way Bach reflects on the concept of key. In so doing, Holtham illustrates the manner in which Bach's genius and tonal landscape foregrounds the development of classical music of the subsequent centuries.
