Distinguished pianist Antony Gray is an Australian who has based himself in London for over 30 years. He has recorded for ABC Classics for the last 20 years. Antony’s debut recording for ABC Classics was in the early 1990s; the piano music of Sir Eugene Goossens which was acclaimed for his ‘diligent and captivating pianism surpasses all competition’ and ‘technical assurance and expressivity are hugely impressive’. The other notable release is Malcolm Williamson’s complete music for solo piano, on which IRR notes Antony delivers ‘excellent performances … dispatched with considerable technical and artistic accomplishment. I cannot recommend this issue too strongly.’

Williamson’s piano music is uncompromising and rarely speaks the same musical language and this J.S Bach project is no different. J.S Bach’s works are uncompromising and here Antony Gray has compiled excerpts from over 60 of Bach’s works; from note for note transcriptions through to liberal offerings where the transcriber very much adds his/her style to Bach’s original. The diversity of transcriptions here mark Gray’s trademark intelligence, energy and atmospheric emotion as musician and pianist.
