Bach, J S:
- Partitas Nos. 1-6, BWV825-830
Performed by Vladimir Feltsman, piano
Much has been written about the music of Johann Sebastian Bach; and almost every day I have the awareness of how this man’s creativity in music has affected the music that followed for 300 years after he died. That’s real impact; right?
Pianist and conductor Vladimir Feltsman is one of the most versatile and constantly interesting musicians of our time. Mr. Feltsman is well known for his interpretation of Bach’s music. And his repertoire actually encompasses music from the Baroque to 20th-century composers.
I heard Mr. Feltsman in a live concert of Bach’s music at the Aspen Festival, many years ago. It was magical! A dedicated educator of young musicians, Mr. Feltsman holds the Distinguished Chair of Professor of Piano at the State University of New York, New Paltz, and is a member of the piano faculty at the Mannes College of Music in New York City.
