Editorial Reviews

Product Description

For decades Tatiana Nikolayeva was celebrated as one of the finest pianists and pedagogues in the Soviet world, but it was not until the waning days of the Soviet Union that her renown spread to the West. Commanding a very large repertoire of piano works by composers both Russian and Western, her most notable recordings were of Bach and Beethoven, often on the state-owned Melodiya imprint. This album contains some of her signature Bach pieces, including the Italian Concerto, Toccata & Fugue in D Minor, Chaconne in D Minor, and Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring. Gramophone recommended, this album will please both the casual listener and the most erudite connoisseur.

Review

Nikolayeva's version of [Toccata and Fugue in D minor is] played with due majesty and sense of drama, and given something of an organ-like palette of colour... [She is] a romantic at heart and so too is her view. The Chaconne is majestic and heartfelt but it isn't 'baroque'... As a statement of love and respect by a superb pianist this is an eloquent recording. --Gramophone

Format: Audio CD
..formerly on an MK 3 cd set, and everything here was on the third cd except the Italian Concerto.
And everthing except the IC is a transcription from Bach works for organ, violin, flute or
chorus/vocal soloists and orchestra ( the Cantatas BWV147 and BWV140). Nikolayeva was a supreme Bach interpreter who also
premiered the Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues. She was unaffected and was equally comfortable
with joyful works such as the Fugue BWV578, quiet and beautiful works such as the Chorale Preludes BWV 639 and 659, and the gigantic Chaconne BWV 1005. This is unmannered playing
a bit like that of Wilhelm Kempff but more muscular/earthy. It is one of my favorite Bach piano recitals.

Nikolayeva is one of the best pianist ever when it comes to Bach (Check out her "Art of fugue").
A lot of very known pieces & transcriptions. The palette of sound she can display is extraordinary, both power and delicacy.
Yes there are other ways to play than Mr. G. Gould. A real plasusre.
