Rosalyn Tureck continues to be mentioned by journalists as a rather controversial figure, however I'm not sure why that is. I can hardly think of a Bach interpreter who's spent as much time as she has researching and dedicating their life to Bach's music. I've never thought of her playing as stylish or unusual other than her tendency to take tempos less briskly than others however that just speak's of her superb musicianship.
In the years between 1951 and 1952 in NYC, Rosalyn Tureck recorded The Well-tempered Clavier 1 & 2. These discs are of course in mono and were released in 2000 by Deutsche Grammophon. I've not heard them and the price is a bit steep, so I was wondering whether anyone could comment on this release? Also, any mention of other recordings may just keep the conversation inviting.
