Praised by the Washington Post as “a musician in service to [Bach’s] music, searching its depths, exploring its meaning and probing its possibilities”, Rafał Blechacz has been immersed in Bach since childhood.

Blechacz’s first Bach album, set for release on Deutsche Grammophon on 10 February, opens with one of the pianist’s signature pieces, the Italian Concerto BWV 971, and includes the Partitas No.1 in B flat major BWV 825 and No.3 in A minor BWV 827. The programme also comprises the four Duets BWV 802-805, enigmatic pieces from Part Three of the Clavier-Übung, the Fantasie and Fugue in A minor BWV 944, and the chorale Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring as transcribed for piano by Dame Myra Hess.
