Murray Perahia: Bach Partitas with a steady hand

img  Tobias

In 1990, Murray Perahia suffered a cut to his right thumb, which turned into a chronical condition. Despite the pain, Perahia continued playing, his discography growing at a fast pace. In 2000, he released his rendition of the „Goldberg Variations“. which turned into a minor scale-sensation and is now considered on of the more intruiging interpretations of that piece of  the last few years. After recording Bach's Piano Concertos in 2001, Murray Perahia all but disappeared from the scene again after his hand issue made it impossible for him to fulfill his concert obligations. His live performances in 2006 and 2007 were already greeted with sold-out concert halls and continuing demand for new studio output.

Sony BMG Masterworks are celebrating the occasion by presenting the new album by Murray Perahia in the best possible way. The limited first edition of „Bach – Partitas 2, 3 & 4“ will be pressed as a special digipackand include a facsimile of a Bach document.
