Numbering more than 200, Bach’s keyboard works form the most substantial part of his output. Any attempt to of er an exhaustive representation of this particular compositional universe on a single CD is bound, therefore, to end in failure if it tries to do more than simply provide a source of listening pleasure. Such a statement should come as no surprise if we bear in mind the fact that the work of the master of Eisenach also reveals a development from modal counterpoint to the tonal harmonic system across a repertoire which – as refl ected on this album – encompasses everything from pieces designed for those in the early stages of learning to play a keyboard instrument to the legendary Well-tempered Clavier collection, via an endless array of preludes, suites, inventions and sinfonias.

As Esteban Hernández Castello explains in the accompanying booklet: “This enables us to range through the whole gamut of musical languages the composer employed, from the simplest to the most elaborate, including – and why not – pieces whose attribution is still uncertain”. In Rinaldo Alessandrini’s playing we again encounter the unpretentious elegance that is his hallmark, his attention to detail and nuance, and the radiant thoughtfulness he bestows on the polyphony – qualities that have been refined over the years by his work with Concerto Italiano and his intensive cultivation of the vocal repertoire.
