Pierre-Laurent Aimard – The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II

Pierre-Laurent Aimard piano

JS Bach The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II (complete)

Pierre-Laurent Aimard, one of the world’s greatest living pianists, climbs the Everest of solo keyboard repertoire: Book II of Johann Sebastian Bach’s towering tour de force.

Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier consists of two sets of 24 preludes and fugues in every key, an epic journey made one semi-tone at a time. Put like that, ‘The 48’ sounds like a mere academic exercise. But this is music of vivid brilliance and staggering imagination – and there’s no better guide than French master Pierre-Laurent Aimard.

Bach neither intended nor expected The Well-Tempered Clavier to be played as a single work, and every concert performance is a landmark event. Aimard has lived with this music for a lifetime – and a decade on from his recording of Book I, he’s now bringing Book II to The Bridgewater Hall. Unmissable.
