Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont plays Bach

ZED15001 | Release date: February 15th, 2016 | , , | Artist : Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont

Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont plays Bach is the first ZeD Classics release of the young French pianist, who sees it as a return to the roots of modern keyboard music.

The album features some of the most celebrated keyboard works, the toccata in E minor, the first partita in B-flat Major and the sixth partita in E minor. “This album is the result of a long exploration of Bach works on a modern piano.” says pianist Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont. “Although I’ve played them for a long time, I’ve never played these pieces in public. In fact, I’ve never played any of Bach’s music in public. Releasing this album is like inviting the listener in my secret garden, in my inner musical life.” he added.

Reviews

…The music unfolds so naturally — nothing seems strained, nothing forced. The best of Bach.
…The Toccata in E minor is an exquisite masterpiece played to near perfection … [The partitas], too, are played superbly…
Anthony Kershaw, Audiophilia

…This incredibly intimate album is recorded with such clarity that all of the subtleties of Dablemont’s playing is easily perceptible to a listener, bringing one quite quickly into Dablemont’s musical world, emphasised by his refined and pristine phrasing as well as his sensitivity towards each harmonic shift.
Lewis Wolstanholme, Musical Opinions
