Bach: The Complete Works for Keyboard, Vol. 2 - Towards the North / Alard$27.50
In this second installment of the complete keyboard works, Benjamin Alard demonstrates with splendid eloquence how invaluable the young Bach's north German experience proved to be. His attentive examination of the works of the great organ masters and his craving for all kinds of music significantly broadened the stylistic foundations of his keyboard writing. The wide range of works presented here, complemented by pieces by Buxtehude, Reinken and Pachelbel, illustrates in exemplary fashion the power of a master in the making.
