Prelude 5 – J.S.Bach

Play Video

Prelude n 5 in Re Major from the first book of the Well-Tempered Clavier composed by J. S. Bach.

I do not like the fast versions that are usually heard. It seems that since Glenn Gould’s fabulous and popular performance, all the pianists are striving to prove their technique by trying to beat the speed record of the latter. Played more slowly, I rediscover a completely different story that completely changes the nature of the song.

The same pattern that is repeated in different tones. A principle that we find more and more today in composers like Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen, Hans Zimmer …

The Chopin Nocturnal 1 made me develop the independence of the hands, as well as the management of large arpeggios, Beethoven’s Moonlight made me develop the interpretation and the weight of each finger, each gesture, here , this prelude made me develop dexterity and memory

My latest cover


Prelude n 5 en Re Majeur issu du premier livre du Clavier Bien Tempéré composé par J. S. Bach. Je n’aime pas trop les versions rapides usuellement entendues. On dirait que depuis la fabuleuse et populaire interprétation de Glenn Gould, tous les pianistes s’acharnent à prouver leur technique en essayent de battre le record de vitesse de ce dernier. Joué plus lentement, j’y redécouvre une toute autre histoire qui channge complètement la nature du morceau. Un même motif qui se répète en différentes tonalités. Un principe qu’on retrouve de plus en plus aujourd’hui chez des compositeurs comme Ludovico Einaudi, Yann Tiersen, Hans Zimmer… Le nocturne 1 de Chopin m’a fait développer l’indépendance des mains, ainsi que la gestion d’arpèges amples, le clair de Lune de Beethoven m’a fait développer l’interprétation et le poids de chaque doigts, chaque geste, ici, ce prélude m’a fait largement développer la dextérité et la mémoire
