This CD - the last in the Hewitt's cycle of solo keyboard works of Bach - is one in Hewitt's discography that doesn't get as much attention as some others but is an emmensely satisfying musical experience. Spanning decades of Bach's life, the selections on this CD are quite diverse and represent what Angela Hewitt calls, "The best of the rest" - referring to the remaining works of Bach she felt were significant to record ... but by no means "the bottom of the barrel." She saved some treasures for last which include here two grand fantasies/fugues, two choral preludes of simple beauty, a few suite- and tocatta-like pieces, one radiant sonata and the star of the recital for me, the magnificant Aria with variations in "the Italian style" (BWV989).

In the two fantasia/fugues (early works likely composed for organ), Miss Hewitt brings out the two or three voices with a commanding and often fascinating articulation and precision. She masterfully and simultaneously summons a wide range of nuances and dynamics in her seamless, overlapping fugal voices. In the opening A-minor fugue she deftly creates an commanding, organ-like voice of great strength and rigidity on the left hand while - with the right hand - quiet, ethereal textures of lightness and lithe (assisted by the tactful use of the pedals). The combination and progression are most enthralling to hear. Similarly, the C-major fugue is a dancing run of great joy where the final A-minor "perpetual motion" fugue is nearly five breathtaking minutes of seamless semiquavers like liquid. Both A minor works possess a virtusoity and complexity reminiscent of the monumental Chromatic Fantasia/Fugue in D minor (BWV903).

Livelier, trickier and more enjoyable Bach than might be expected, and excellently performed -- came as a surprise to this listener.

The recording quality is great, the playing is clear and very typical of Hewitt's style. The pieces are however not all particularly compelling when compared to those on her other CDs, since this is more of a selection of miscellaneous compositions she had not recorded previously.
