Welcome to my videoblog, where I speak about my new Bach album!

Webisode #1

Bach: Fantasia & Fugue in A Minor, BWV 944

by Rafał Blechacz | February 16, 2017

Bach's music was my first musical fascination, which is why playing his music always makes me feel like going back in time. I wanted to play the organ at first, which I still do from time to time, and this influenced my recording of this piece on the album.

Bach: Italian Concerto In F Major, BWV 971

by Rafał Blechacz | February 24, 2017

One of the most well-known pieces on the album is of course the Italian Concerto. It’s not only optimistic and joyful but has a contrasting 2nd movement. In this blogpost I talk about what I think of the three movements as well as how I try to bring meaning to the tradition of Tutti and Soli writing in this piece, while being just one performer!
