As a young pianist, András Schiff earned wide esteem for his 1980s recordings of the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach; in recent years, as part of his long-term relationship with ECM, he has gone back to Bach as a sage veteran, earning more acclaim for his New Series recordings of the Goldberg Variations (2001) and the Six Partitas (2007). The New York Times said, "Mr. Schiff is, in Bach, a phenomenon. He doesn't so much perform it as emit, breathe it." In August 2011, Schiff turned his focus to the 48 preludes and fugues of The Well-Tempered Clavier, making studio recordings of both books in the Auditorium Radiosvizzera Italiana, Lugano. An iconic inspiration for composers from Mozart and Beethoven to Chopin and Brahms and beyond, The Well-Tempered Clavier has long been considered the Old Testament of the keyboard literature (with Beethoven's piano sonatas as the New Testament). "Schiffs Bach-Spiel ist nicht so motorisiert wie das von Glenn Gould, nicht so geschraubt wie bei Friedrich Gulda. Seine Art des Musizierens wirkt gelöst und gewachsen. Selbst in den Zonen mittlerer Lautstärke findet Schiff stets so viele Abtönungen, dass man damit gleich mehrere Pianisten zu ihrem Vorteil ausrüsten könnte. Diese Aufnahme bildet keinen lauwarmen Neu-Aufguss der in die Jahre gekommenen früheren Einspielung - auch wenn sich Schiff in Vielem treu geblieben ist, etwa bei der Sparsamkeit des Pedaleinsatzes. Doch jetzt wirkt alles noch klarer, noch direkter, noch spontaner, eben gereifter. Wer eine Maßstab setzende Einspielung von Bachs Wohltemperiertem Klavier sucht - hier ist sie!" (ndr.de)
