Formal rigor and musical emotion meet in perfect communion. Following several outstanding recordings of other works by Bach, Andreas Staier invites us to climb this Everest once again, but starting, as it were, with the north face, the second book, and revealing it's poetry, it's sensibility and it's daunting architecture with the utmost naturalness.
