My sense is that many musicians record the music of Johann Sebastain Bach quite early in their careers. That is not the case with pianist Nelson Freire.
On this new recording, we have an opportunity to enjoy the following music by Bach, and also some transcriptions by others.
Partita No. 4 in D major, BWV828
Toccata in C minor, BWV911
English Suite No. 3 in G minor, BWV808
Chromatic Fantasia & Fugue in D minor, BWV903
Keyboard Concerto in D minor (after Marcello), BWV974
Ich ruf zu dir, Herr Jesu Christ (Bach BWV 639)
Komi, Gott Schöpfer (Bach BWV 667)
Nun komm der heiden Heiland’ (after Bach, BWV659)
Jesus bleibet meine Freude
Organ Prelude in G minor (Bach)
