After Bach’s Goldberg Variations, which won him worldwide honors (including a Diapason d’Or), Hannes Minnaar challenges and confronts what has become a ‘classic’ of the 20th century repertoire: Shostakovich’s Preludes and Fugues, composed in 1951.

Here again, the qualities of his pianism, for which he is recognized as one of the leading musicians of our time, come under the spotlight: the diversity of touch and the suppleness between tension and tranquility to characterize every Prelude and Fugue, the precision of tone, the lack of any affectation, a natural finesse in phrasing and articulation, and a familiarity with the score going hand in hand with a freshness that conjures a sense of improvisation. Here we encounter a new landmark in the crowded field of interpretations of this wonderful music.
