Now Available: 4-CD Set of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier

From the 11" acetate tapes never before released to the public: a 4-CD set of J.S. Bach's "The Well-Tempered Clavier," (48 Preludes & Fugues) recorded by Alexander Borovsky in 1955. The original tape reels were willed to Borovsky's student George Zilzer, who in turn gave them to William Jones, student of Borovsky. The 4-disc set includes a 44-page booklet of Borovsky's notes on "The 48," researched and compiled by William Jones.

"Borowsky plays with judicious use of the pedal, a beautifully polished sonority, and mindful articulation, enabling his wonderfully consistent voicing of Bach's contrapuntal writing to be clearly heard and appreciated. The box set, produced by one of Borowsky's students using the master tapes from the pianist's collection, features the recordings in thoroughly amazing sound and includes a booklet with the pianist's writings about all of the 48 Preludes and Fugues."
