Simply beautiful: The Prelude #1 from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier.
Pure joy in sound: one of J.S. Bach's singular abilities is to write truly joyous music.
The C-Sharp Minor fugue is an animal! It builds to a climax in the bass that hits like a cannon (haha!)
A Bach fugue in four voices, with the music. You can hear each voice clearly and distinctly.

Getting a first review of an album is very exciting. Getting a review that essentially says "this is my favorite version of this piece" is mind-blowing. That's exactly what Grego Applegate Edwards wrote about Kimiko Ishizaka's upcoming Well-Tempered Clavier recording. The excitement builds! Available in stores from March 10, and as a public domain download from March 24 http://classicalmodernmusic.blogspot.de/2015/02/js-bach-w...

In Paris? Come join Kimiko Ishizaka for a concert of Bach and Chopin on Sunday, January 21, 2015. She is performing as a part of the first ever "Festival du Domaine Public". The concert is sponsored by Wikimedia.fr and admission is libre.
The video of the Complete Goldberg Variations has proven to be the most popular video to date in terms of the minutes watched. Apparently, people like to listen to the Goldberg Variations and leave it playing in an open tab while doing something else. Did you know, however, that you can download the lossless audio files for Kimiko Ishizaka's Goldberg Variations directly from Bandcamp? https://kimikoishizaka.bandcamp.com
