Composed during Bach s early years as a composer, these Toccatas are written in the Stylus Phantasticus, inherited from the great Buxtehude. Free-flowing, virtuoso, fresh, they form a false album collated after the composer s death, and are unjustly among the least known works of the master of Weimar. For her first solo disc, the pianist Amandine Savary gives a perfect performance of these masterpieces of sensitivity. The French pianist Amandine Savary was awarded a scholarship to enter the Royal Academy of Music in London, obtaining her BMus diploma with honours in 2007.

It is impossible to overstate the profundity with which Bach has probed the secret inner recesses of the human heart – quite the opposite from the ‘divine sewing machine’ that Colette saw in his work. He was really an opera composer, showing great psychological penetration, not only spiritually but in basic human terms, from the tenderness of love to the terror felt when confronting death. Separated from any liturgical or musicological context, this programme aims to stress Bach’s genius for expressing human passions in all their diversity. –GILLES CANTAGREL

277 tracks 1928-50, 64bit mastering. Django Reinhardt recorded prolifically in many different group settings over 4 decades. It's difficult to know where to start or where to go once you've gotten started collecting a few of his recordings. The 20 cd Djangologie box set is the place to go once you've decided to take the plunge into Django's music. It covers all 4 decades chronologically, but rather than trying to comprehensively collect all of Django's recordings (including all of the ones where he is a sideman in dance bands etc) it largely concentrates on the Quintette and other small group recordings, which is what most people want to hear. The sound quality is very good and relatively consistent throughout the collection. There is a minimum of tape hiss, clicks and pops. The sound mastering hasn't overemphasized any portion of the audio spectrum and has instead gone for a balanced group sound. Highly recommended if you want to get serious about listening to Django without all of the confusion that comes from piecing together smaller complilations.
