Johann Sebastian Bach
Great Bach Interpreters of the Past
"The purists are scandalized!" - Pablo Casals
Here I will list CD reissues and releases that document superlative performances by
the superior Bach performers of the past. The standard is not whether or not the
performance practice is "authentic" or correct. The standard is whether or not the
performance is charismatic, compelling, and musical.
For the moment I give you just scans of the covers of these unsurpassable and
irreplaceable recordings, listed alphabetically by artist. As the weeks go by, I plan to
add descriptive comments for each of these gramophonic treasures.
By the way, sad to say, inclusion of a recording on this list does not necessarily
mean that it is either still in print or easily acquired.
