Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor

Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor Lowest new price: $5.68
Lowest used price: $3.88
Brand: Telarc

1. Prelude and Fugue in D major, BWV 532 2. Prelude and Fugue in B minor, BWV 544 3. Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 4. Concerto for Organ solo in A minor, BWV 593 (after Vivaldi)

Features:

  • With two organs available, at opposite ends of a long nave, a total of 214 ranks (including, we are told, ''several'' at 32 feet), playable from two consoles, one might expect a Star Wars-type bombardment. Let me say at once that there is nothing of that here. Everything is in perfect taste. True, the D minor Toccata flares away on reeds of truly spitfire quality, but magnificent display is what's wanted, and by golly it's what we get! The Fugue goes at a spanking pace, with enchanting registration of the episodes, marred by one small reed which momentarily yowls. By contrast, the A minor Concerto is on a modest scale, relying on Murray's brilliant technique to provide the thrill-yet nothing could be more restrained than his account of the middle movement, 8 feet stops playing in octaves-and still maintaining the interest. The two preludes and fugues, though kept on a tight rein, unfold with relentless drive, and the searing effect of the reeds in the D major's climaxes is quite breath-taking. In an unclouded ambience, the richness of the chorus work makes for very satisfying listening, given responsive speakers, and the poised ungimmicky playing can be recommended even to those who've heard it all many times before. This one is different. -- Gramophone

Shostakovich: 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87 Lowest new price: $10.18
Lowest used price: $6.89

Shostakovich performed at a Bach bicentennial festival at Leipzig in 1950. Under the spell of Bach, he quickly wrote this homage, which contains some of his most consistently inspired and inventive music. After half a century, it is now accepted as a timeless classic, a sincere homage to Bach, still individual and expressive. Shostakovich wrote the music for his student Tatiana Nikolayeva, who performed the world premiere. Her three recordings of the cycle are close to definitive, especially the set on Melodiya, which is economically priced but uneconomically spread over three CDs. Scherbakov, who has already made some impressive discs for Naxos, provides a very strong challenge. No recording of this cycle has captured the brooding, inward quality of some of this music as well as Nikolayeva's, but Scherbakov comes close. Where virtuosity is required, he actually surpasses the impressive Nikolayeva. Considering the fine sound quality and extremely reasonable price of this set, it's at least a clear second choice for the ultimate recording of the series, and probably a good first choice for an introduction to the music. The performances are even superior to the well-known versions by Keith Jarrett and Vladimir Ashkenazy. --Leslie Gerber

Bach: The Art of Fugue / Musical Offering Lowest new price: $7.95
Lowest used price: $3.49
Brand: Philips Classics

There are many apocryphal stories in the classical-music world, but the one in which Frederick the Great challenged Bach to improvise a six-part fugue on a theme of the king's own invention is true, and The Musical Offering was, after a period of further reflection, the result. As with all the works of Bach's later years, the work is both great art and a "teaching piece," which shows everything that he thought could be done with the king's theme. The Trio Sonata based on the theme is the only major piece of chamber music from Bach's last decades in Leipzig, and that makes the work and essential cornerstone of any Bach collection. This performance, led by Neville Marriner, is both polished and lively, and very well recorded. At a "twofer" price, coupled with The Art of Fugue, it's the preferred version of the work on modern instruments. --David Hurwitz

Features:

  • The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080
