Bach Performance on the Piano (DVD)

£15.99

Angela Hewitt’s DVD “Bach Performance on the Piano” is in two parts. The first is a two-and-a-half-hour lecture in seven chapters. Each is introduced with a performance of a short piece of Bach (the C major Two-part Invention, the Menuet in G, the E major Fugue from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier, etc.). The chapters include such topics as The Essentials (Phrasing, Singing tone, Articulation, Fingering, Pedalling) to Interpretation (Tempo, Dynamics, Rhythmic alterations), The Dance in Bach, Learning a Fugue, Ornamentation, as well as advice on editions, memorization, and practising Bach. The second part is a recital comprising of the Partita No. 4 in D major, the Italian Concerto, and the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue.

The DVD was filmed in the Fazioli piano factory and concert hall near Venice which makes a fascinating back-drop to the lecture. There are subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, two types of Chinese, and Russian.

The DVD will play in all regions of the world.
