This artist also has recorded the WTC, Goldberg Variations and Inventions and Sinfonias. She was a friend of Shostakovich and his Preludes and Fugues were dedicated to her. In this Art of Fugue she demonstrates good taste, at the same time using all resources and effects available to the pianist. All voices in the contrapuncts can be heard. She provides definite proof of the artistic intention (and not merely didactic, as some have tried to prove) of J. S. Bach when he composed The Art of Fugue.

An amazing recording. Her Art of Fugue is flawless, with subtlety and beautiful expressiveness. Often profoundly gentle, other times rich and powerful. She also includes Two Ricercars from The Musical Offering and The Four Duets. Extraordinary piano interpretations of these remarkable works.
includes extensive liner notes with examples of each contrapuntus theme.
