András Schiff is one of the best Bach players among Gould, Rosalyn Tureck and Wanda Landowska. On Schiff's French Suites, every part from every suite has a different color and gives you different feeling. Every harmony is taken to its end with care, and dynamic balance is always delightful to listen. Articulation of the notes is excellent, full of humour, and in some places you surely start to smile and you feel very happy when you listen to Schiff. He also plays the slow parts very deeply and warmly, which is for some artists a big problem when playing Bach. There are also Italian Concerto and French Overture on the CD's, played brilliantly, so this set is really worth buying. Recommended for everyone.
Set in the western plains circa 1890, A Dirty Western opens upon a series of unique visuals and effects depicting the escape of three dangerous convicts. It's a torrid story of abduction, eroticism, and lust in the wild and woolly west. You'll be back in the saddle again as Luke savagely attacks the virginity of Maria, as the girls are forced to perform an exhibition of lesbianism. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the posse closes in on our evil trio in a spectacular orgy of lust and more lust…It's about time somebody made A Dirty Western!
Strong but delicate, deliberate but subtle, driven but supple, Masaaki Suzuki's 2005 recording of Bach's Italian Concerto and French Overture for harpsichord are quite convincing in their own distinctive way. In Suzuki's hands, the opening crash of the Italian Concerto is as instantly arresting as the powerful opening prelude and fugue from the French Overture is immediately appealing.
