Centered around Johann Sebastian Bach’s late masterpiece The Art of Fugue, this new double album reflects pianist Daniil Trifonov’s insight into the family life and music-making of one of the greatest composers of all time. Works by four of Johann Sebastian’s sons as well as two pieces known to have been Bach family favorites are also included in a program taking in everything from lighthearted, dance-like pieces to the mournful majesty of the Chaconne in D minor. Already renowned for his recordings of the Romantic repertoire, Trifonov brings the same magical combination of vitality, sensitivity, and flawless technical command to these works of an earlier age.
