Switched-On Bach

Switched-On Bach Lowest new price: $68.64
Lowest used price: $39.99
List price: $16.98

Wendy Carlos's Switched-On Bach is one of those rare novelty recordings that never gets boring. In the capable hands of Carlos, Bach's keyboard masterpieces sound like they were made for the otherworldly blurps, farts, and chimes of a Moog synthesizer. And, in a sense, they were. Bach's inventive music doesn't lose any of its contrapuntal punch in these complicated arrangements and, novelties aside, the playing is great on this Grammy Award-winning classic. Whether performing Bach's "Two-Part Inventions," "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," or "Wachet Auf," Carlos offers one-of-a-kind interpretations, her synthesizers still sounding as otherworldly as they did in 1968. This is one of those weird and wonderful classical releases that anyone--classical scholar or pop enthusiast--can enjoy. A Switched-On box set exists, capturing most of Carlos's baroque-gone-berserk output, but this is the disc that started it all. In a word, fun. --Jason Verlinde

Shostakovich: 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87

Shostakovich: 24 Preludes and Fugues, Op. 87 Lowest new price: $11.25
Lowest used price: $7.79
List price: $17.99

Shostakovich performed at a Bach bicentennial festival at Leipzig in 1950. Under the spell of Bach, he quickly wrote this homage, which contains some of his most consistently inspired and inventive music. After half a century, it is now accepted as a timeless classic, a sincere homage to Bach, still individual and expressive. Shostakovich wrote the music for his student Tatiana Nikolayeva, who performed the world premiere. Her three recordings of the cycle are close to definitive, especially the set on Melodiya, which is economically priced but uneconomically spread over three CDs. Scherbakov, who has already made some impressive discs for Naxos, provides a very strong challenge. No recording of this cycle has captured the brooding, inward quality of some of this music as well as Nikolayeva's, but Scherbakov comes close. Where virtuosity is required, he actually surpasses the impressive Nikolayeva. Considering the fine sound quality and extremely reasonable price of this set, it's at least a clear second choice for the ultimate recording of the series, and probably a good first choice for an introduction to the music. The performances are even superior to the well-known versions by Keith Jarrett and Vladimir Ashkenazy. --Leslie Gerber

This is the début recording from pianist Shai Wosner, an artist who continues to attract international recognition for his exceptional artistry, musical integrity and creative insight. Wosner s virtuosity and perceptiveness have increasingly made him a favorite among audiences
and critics alike. In 2005, Wosner won an Avery Fisher Career Grant. He also continues his extensive performing and recording activity as a BBC New Generation Artist. Wosner calls the Suite by Schonberg and the Handel Variations by Brahms declarations of independence. The Schonberg was his first purely 12-tone work, and the Brahms was his first wholly successful solo piano work after the three early sonatas. Brahms the revolutionary is highlighted by Wosner on this CD by interweaving the late Fantasies with Schoenberg s early Op.19 Piano Pieces. Only twelve years separate the two and the surprises from Wosner s clever juxtaposition are many.
