About

In September 2019, Dina Ugorskaja passed away at the age of 46, leaving her recordings as a testament. Her recording of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier in cooperation with Bayerische Rundfunk in Munich is presented here.

On interpreting these works, Dina wrote: “One essential aspect in this project was the experience of returning to my early encounters with Bach’s music: to try to remember what it had been like when I heard it for the first time. I tried to free myself from certain clich s that had ‘gotten stuck’ in a series of interpretations. This was particularly difficult in Volume I, since I had often heard those pieces in the hands of outstanding performers.”

Dina Ugorskaja gave her debut performance when she was only seven years old in the Philharmonic Hall at Saint Petersburg. Not only was she an outstanding pianist, she was also a vocalist specialising in early music, and wrote a number of chamber works.

Reviews

The cycle is beautifully recorded, and facilitates plenty of detail. ... All told, these are revelatory performances by a pianist with the Midas touch.
