Jörg Demus

Jörg Demus - The Bach Recordings on Westminster (11CD)

Bach playing to refresh the spirits as well as satisfy the mind: the early recordings of consummate Viennese pianist, Jörg Demus, unfailingly lively as well as faithful.

By his own account, Bach’s music came easily and straightforwardly to Demus as a talented teenager at the piano. Though he made his official concert debut as a pianist playing Beethoven, it was his four-concert cycle of The Well-Tempered Clavier, as a recent graduate of the Wiener Akademie, that set Demus on the path of a career which soon attracted the attention of US labels such as Remington and Westminster. From the late-1950s onwards he recorded the major works of Bach gathered here.
