Emil Gilels Plays Bach - Vol. 2 - First Time on CD

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of J S Bach’s works performed by Emil Gilels.

This disc continues the series of recordings made by the great pianist. However, these recordings suggest a different view on Gilels’ performing art.

Emil Gilels entered the music life of the USSR as a virtuoso in the best, romantic sense of the word. His inspired artistry always produced a magnetic effect on the audience. He conquered the world with his performances of Beethoven’s sonatas, Mozart’s works in Salzburg, and interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s and Rachmaninov’s concertos. It was difficult to assume that a well-established stereotype of romantic pianism hid an inspired and profound interpreter of Bach’s music.

Johann Sebastian Bach was never at the centre of Gilels’ repertoire. They were more like individual pieces, but that was exactly what made them so unexpected at his concerts. Nevertheless, he kept revisiting some of them time and again.

This disc features recordings made in 1948 to 1968. Not claiming to be authentic and at the same time not falling into excessive romanticism, Emil Gilels shapes his own unique vision of the great cantor’s music world.
