Harpsichordist Alexander Weimann returns with a new recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Clavierübung II. This album includes the French Overture, BWV 831, and well-known Italian Concerto for solo harpsichord, BWV 971. These works demonstrate the two most prominent and modern national styles of the time. For Weimann, Bach “astonishes with a convincing combination of complete naturalness and state-of-the-art idiom.”
"Weimann’s approach is of great concentration, with a detailed care which takes precedence over the desire to seduce. Note the beauty of the harpsichord by Yves Beaupré..."
Christophe Huss - Le Devoir - 30 October 2009
"Performance-wise and interpretively, I very much like Weimann’s approach, which is distinguished by crisp, clean articulation, alert phrasing, clear voicing, and rhytmic buoyancy that does not depend on extremes of tempo to make its point...Recommended."
