Ten years ago Angela Hewitt recorded a version of The Well-Tempered Clavier Book I which dazzled the critical world and record-buying public. It was followed shortly afterwards by Book II which was similarly received. Now, fresh from her Bach World Tour in which she performed the complete Well-Tempered Clavier from August 2007 until the end of October 2008 in 58 cities in 21 countries on six continents. Angela has made an entirely new recording of this most iconic of keyboard works. In a revealing and personal programme note, Angela explains her reasons, both artistic and emotional, for this momentous creative decision. She speaks of the new-found freedom that she discovered in her later performances, and especially her use of Fazioli pianos, whose luminous, powerful, and also ever so delicate sounds opened new worlds to me and allowed my imagination to take flight. This is an unmissable new release

Landowska by Wanda Landowska( Visual )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the life and times of harpsichordist Wanda Landowska and how she revived interest in the harpsichord as a concert instrument after a century of oblivion. Includes segments from her only filmed appearance (a 1953 television interview) which displays the virtuosity of her music-making as well as her public persona, a savvy mix of humility and self-awareness. Landowska reflects on her life as a woman and a musician, and discusses her love of music, of her audiences, and of life itself. The film resonates with Landowska's music - vintage recordings of Bach, Scarlatti, Couperin, and others. Landowska gives aggressive, dazzling performances of the music she adored, demonstrating why no one ever listened to a harpsichord in quite the same way after hearing her play
