Bach, Gubaidulina, Hindemith

Bach / Busoni: Ich ruf zu Dir, Herr Jesu Christ: Nun komm' der Heiden Heiland; Chaconne
Sofia Gubaidulina: Chaconne.
Paul Hindemith: 1922 Suite für Klavier Marsch Shimmy Nachtstück Boston Ragtime
Bach / Siloti: Prelude in b minor

Anna Gourari - piano

ECM 2255 476 4661

Bach arranged and influenced; a well conceived programme framing Gubaidulina's Chaconne and the young Hindemith's anarchic 1922 Suite (which I used to enjoy playing, but had never heard till now).

Anna Gouari is a charismatic Russian pianist born in Kazan, as was Gubaidulina. Recommended; enjoy her on YouTube.
