Surely only a pianist who has penetrated to the depths of Johann Sebastian Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier for decades, artistically and pedagogically, can afford to offer this milestone of piano literature on her debut CD. Gerlinde Otto Professor at the Academy of Music in Weimar is this artist, presenting the second volume of Bach's monumental cycle as her first production on GENUIN. She plays vibrantly and with a big sound; her Bach sings and goes directly to the heart. She offers the listener a whole that is more than the sum of its parts and, at the same time, a chain of jewels: as Philipp Spitta has already written, a series of "organisms at rest within themselves".
