About

David Fray returns to Bach – his last Bach album was in 2013.

It features the Concertos for 2, 3, and 4 pianos, with contemporaries Emmanuel Christien and Audrey Vigoureux, and his former teacher Jacques Rouvier, accompanied by the strings of the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse.

The music on this album gives rise to two intriguing questions. Firstly, are these concertos original Bachian creations?
Secondly, should they be played on modern pianos? The two issues are in fact closely linked by the idea of transcription.

Four of the keyboard concertos recorded here derive either from works originally composed by Bach for other instruments (this is true of the Concerto in C minor, BWV 1062 for two harpsichords – a transcription of the celebrated and exceptional Concerto in D minor for two violins, BWV 1043), or from works by Bach of which we are more or less aware, but whose initial  versions have not survived. This applies to the Concerto in C major, BWV 1061 and the Concerto in C minor, BWV 1060.  As for the Concerto in A minor, BWV 1065 for four harpsichords, it is a reworking of the tenth concerto from  Vivaldi’s L’Estro armonico, op.3, for four violins.

Described by the press as a “poet” and “perhaps the most inspired, certainly the most original Bach player of his generation,” David Fray continues to thrill audiences worldwide as a recitalist, soloist and chamber musician.
