Peter Hill's new CD: Bach, J S: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2 (Delphian, 2 CDs)
A recognised authority in 20th century and contemporary music, Peter Hill turns for the first time on disc to another of his lifelong preoccupations – the music of JS Bach. On this new recording, Hill brings his customary scholarly acumen and crystalline musical intelligence to bear on Book two of the ‘48’ - music of ‘unsurpassed inventiveness’.
“Quite extraordinarily beautiful and right.” The Times
“I listened entranced” Gramophone
"a wonderfully natural unfolding of these pieces". The Guardian
'Hill’s approach is to capture the engaging balance
between the crisp clarity of the music and its innate lyrical soul." The Scotman
