Nikolayeva’s WTC

Donald Satz wrote (October 10, 1999):
I was listening last night to the Nikolayeva WTC recordings on Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga (MK). It's been about a year since I last played her set, and it was better last night than I had remembered. She's nicely expressive in the slower pieces, and exhibits good pacing and insight into the Bach idiom. However, the faster pieces are a problem for her; the flow tends to break down, and instead of a feeling of excitement, I had the feeling that Nikolayeva was being speed challenged.

Are any list members familiar with these recordings? Any opinion on her interpretations?

 

Feedback to the Review

Gerardo Constantini wrote (October 11, 1999):
[To Donal Satz] Uhmmmm. Nikolaieva is one of the greatest Bach interpreters. In order to understand her, is neccesarily to erase the concept of "long phrases", and the concept of speed before than musical rendition. Her way to understand Bach goes to "expressionist" (not exactly expressive) side of it.And being a Russian pianist,she is very rare,since most of the Russian aproach on how to play Bach,is very similar to the aproach used in USA, which is mostly based in long lines (phrases), nice tone quality, and the aproach of "ornamentation" as an accesory instead of ornamentation as an structure in itself.
