A wonderful recording

Aimard continues to delve into the past with this recording of Bach's Art of Fugue. In once sense once could argue that this recording was enevitable in that Aimard, famous for recording new and experimental music, should be the obvious choice to record the most daunting of experimental music. The recording is crisp and clear and the conterpoint never played before with such clarity. This being said I gave this only four stars because it appears that Aimard takes this music purly as an intellectual exercise. The thing that seems to be missing the most in this recording is the spiritual element. This in turn lends the recording to be just an exquisite but dry reading. Had he taken a more reverent approach to the piece as Bach would have preferred, it would have won the fifth star.

The Art of Counterpoint!

The Art of the Fugue again shows us what a great master of counterpoint J.S. Bach was! The performance here by Pierre-Laurent Aimard is well played and sounds great! This music is genius. Be kind and compassionate Guy Piano

It was o.k.

I saw Monsieur Aimard at Carnegie Hall on 3-20-08 performing selections from this CD, to wit; fugues I-XI. Although I was impressed with his voicing and legato in the fugues I was not impressed with his touch. I prefer a softer more "baroque" (if there is such a thing) touch such as Murray Perahia or Mikhail Pletnev have in their recordings of baroque works. Aimard was at times too harsh, like Glenn Gould. In order to make a performance such as this more palatable (in other words to keep it from sounding like one l-o-n-g fugue, which essentially, it is) you have to take care to watch and vary the dynamics, in my humble opinion. I did not feel Aimard did this enough. Same with the recording. His theme for the evening was polyphony through the ages so he also had modern works featuring polyphony by Schoenberg and (in the encores) Carter. These were very impressive. He has an obvious affinity for modern works.

Pierre-Laurent Aimard is one of the leading pianists associated with the mainstream European avant-garde of the last third of the 20th century and the early 21st century. As a student at the Paris Conservatory, he won four first prizes. His teacher was Yvonne Loriod, wife of composer and theory teacher Olivier Messiaen. Aimard's studies with Loriod gave him a close association with Messiaen, resulting in Aimard becoming a leading interpreter of Messiaen's piano music. After graduation from the...
