Info for J.S. Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1, BWV 846-869



Trevor Pinnock is a true pioneer of the early music movement As founder and former leader of The English Concert he enjoys a longstanding relationship with Archiv Produktion and Deutsche Grammophon Among his celebrated recordings are Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Handel’s Messiah and Concerti Grossi Vivaldi’s Four Seasons The Harmonious Blacksmith Bach’s Goldberg Variations and Partitas Throughout his interpretations Pinnock remains true to his core principles favouring musicality and inspiration above musical orthodoxy Achieving an exceptional reputation as a conductor, chamber musician and harpsichordist he has received enthusiastic critical acclaim.

With his first recording of The Well Tempered Clavier (Book 1) Pinnock explores the summit of Bach’s intellectual and contrapuntal mastery “My journey with the Well Tempered Clavier has been life long. I first encountered it at about 12 years old when someone gave me a pink and gold bound volume, the old Czerny edition, which we now know to be notoriously unreliable. This gave me hours of discovery. A few years later, I heard all the preludes and fugues played on the piano on the radio, and I was hooked. In my twenties I myself recorded some preludes and fugues for radio broadcast, and I knew then that one day I would play them all. The mountain seemed insurmountable, however, and Bach a formidable and severe task master how could I possibly delve into the density of some of those fugues, let alone understand them?

So, although I subsequently performed various others of the preludes and fugues, any plan to record all of them was repeatedly postponed by increments of ten years until quite recently, when I decided I could put it off no longer. Now they will be a central part of me for the rest of my life."

Trevor Pinnock, harpsichord



Trevor Pinnock
is renowned world-wide as a harpsichordist and conductor who pioneered the modern revival of early music performance.

In 1972 he founded the English Concert whose reputation for ground-breaking performances on period instruments led to an extensive contract with Deutsche Grammophon and world-wide tours which included major orchestral works of Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn and others, along with choral projects and chamber music. In addition, Pinnock recorded solo works including Bach’s Goldberg Variations and Partitas. He remained Artistic Director of the English Concert until 2003 and since that time he has divided his work between conducting, solo and chamber music engagements and educational projects at the Royal Academy of Music where he is Principal Guest Conductor of the Chamber Orchestra.

He regularly works with Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest Amsterdam, Deutsche Kammerphiharmonie Bremen and Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg. Frequent chamber music partners include flautist Emmanuel Pahud, viola da gamba player Jonathan Manson and violinists Sophie Gent and Matthew Truscott.

In the 2019-20 season, Trevor celebrates 45 years of the English Concert in London and Italy, and joins Frederic Wake Walker to present Schubert’s Lazarus, paired with Vivier’s Lonely Child, at the Potsdamer Winteroper. He tours Handel’s Messiah with Freiburg Barockorchester and returns to the Concertgebouworkest for the Matthäus-Passion. He is joined by Emmanuel Pahud for concerts with the Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini and Orchestre National de Lyon. He leads the Royal Northern Sinfonia in a choral and orchestral programme, and the Warsaw Philharmonic and RAM Chamber Orchestra in Mozart’s late symphonies.

Two new recordings will be released later this year; Book one of Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier and a unique arrangement of the Goldberg Variations by Józef Koffler with Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble.

Trevor Pinnock was awarded a CBE in 1992 and an Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 1998. He is also a recipient of the Wigmore Medal, the York Early Music Centre Lifetime Achievement Award and honorary doctorates from the universities of London, Ottawa, Sheffield and Canterbury.
