[Matisse] was interested neither in fending off opposition,
nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. Franoise Gilot

Classical CD Of The Week: Johann Sebastian Clown

http://bit.ly/CDoftheWeek054


Johann Sebastian Clown: For all those unafraid of garish colors, subwoofer-busting bass, and liberal applications of tremulant and celeste, this is the ticket!

Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier: Forget-Me-Nots And Intimations Of Mortality (Classical CD Of The Week)







And Eff the "(C?)Avi" label for not being able to make its mind up about how they should be called or spelled. What a nuisance and what a moronic strategy to be ambiguous about one's name.

 I thought Dantone's was a characterful interpretation of Book 2, more so than Rousset's in fact. I don't mean this as a value judgement at all. What are the contradictions that Zhu Xiao Mei's meddles? 

How did you chose those recordings to review?

Your website keeps crashing on my iPad, other websites don't.

That's a pity; not my website, of course, but it would probably be much appreciated if you made Forbes aware of that problem at feedback@forbes.com. Sounds annoying.

I thought Dantone's was a characterful interpretation of Book 2, more so than Rousset's in fact.

I've not listened to Dantone a whole lot; enough to like it a lot, though. [Thanks, Qobuz!] Less forced and with a bit more air than Rousset, probably... whose WTC is very peated, if you will.

What are the contradictions that Zhu Xiao Mei's melds? 


Math and Joy. Seriousness and ecstasy. Day and Night. Her's an interpretation that either seems to defy simple tagging or allows to concurrently associate either end of the emotional spectrum. It's not scientific, I'm afraid. But it's my instinctive reaction to it.

How did you choose those recordings to review?

I pulled them off my shelf, basically... The two on the piano are recent recordings; one I had reviewed for a German magazine... they seemed to offer a nice contrast. And I wanted to write about Rousset, so I wedged him into this. Also to make sure that there's no danger of associating these works with the piano, too much.  :-\
