Gulda plays Bach on Clavichord: “English Suite No. 2” released

In the late 1970s, Friedrich Gulda devoted himself in great detail to the game on the clavichord. Recorded and kept in archives, an album of his Bach interpretations of the aforementioned instrument will be released for the first time on 1 June 2018. In addition to excerpts from the well-tempered piano and the chromatic fantasy and fugue, the publication also graces Bach's "English Suite No. 2".

Originally written by Johann Sebastian Bach for the harpsichord,  Gulda transferred the composer's piece to the clavichord. Taking into account the special quality of his instrument, the Austrian composer created an intimate witness of himself.
