This recording is as astonishing now as it was in 1968. Wendy Carlos created truly beautiful sounds from the original analog Moog synthesiser. Her performance was often delicate and expressive and the whole effect is tremendously musical and exciting. She is an astonishing musician, truly one of a kind.
IMO this recording launched a revival of Bach in the recording industry in the 1960's that is going strong today, as well as starting the huge public interest in synthesisers as a musical instrument. But no one has come close to her interpretive and technical skills.
Wendy Carlos' back catalog of Switched-On Bach recordings has been re-released in Switched-On Boxed Set, including the exquisitely beautiful "Well-Tempered Synthesizer".
The re-issued version in the boxed set has now been released as a single cd.
