BACH Complete Keyboard Works Vol. 1 The Young Heir
CD1 - Ohrdruf
CD2 - Lüneburg
CD3 - Arnstadt
Bach's youth was a vast field of observation. From the years of apprenticeship in Ohrdruf, where his precocious artistic sensibility was dazzlingly demonstrated, to his first major post as organist at Arnstadt, Bach constantly enriched his musical culture, underpinned by a strong family tradition and driven by iconic respect for the old masters, crucial affinities and unfailing curiosity. As the prelude to a complete recording of a new kind, the eloquence and vigilant intelligence of the admirable Benjamin Alard's playing are the ideal medium to reveal the technical mastery of Bach's early keyboard works and convey the essence of this young composer's musical discourse at a time when he was already measuring himself against the yardstick of predecessors and contemporaries alike.
