 Diana Boyle piano


Bach’s "Well-Tempered Clavier" - the 48 Preludes and Fugues, 2 sets in each major and minor key, is one of the cornerstones of the baroque keyboard repertoire. Diana Boyle presents an exceptional account of the second set of 24 pieces, played on a modern Grotrian-Steinweg piano.  Her approach to performing this repertoire on a modern piano is astonishing and exciting, bringing the complexity of Bach’s writing to the fore.
 

“As a Bach player Diana Boyle is at once fastidious and a free spirit. Everything is newly invented, and crackling with intellectual energy. These pieces emerge in truly towering sequence.”

Paul Driver
 

The Sunday Times

“There is so much to enjoy in her playing. It is wonderfully clear, bringing out Bach’s counterpoint to perfection and this recording is a must for those who want to study these works from the academic point of view of Bach’s counterpoint. She also has a marvellous way to make some of the music very robust and does not play Bach in that wishy washy, pastel and affected way. For this and many other qualities she is to be commended.”
