McCall says “This is not Bach: I guess that everyone has a story with Bach: musicians, music lovers, classical players, improvisers, composers, rock as well as folk musicians. Most of these stories probably start with a recording that was playing at home, and very likely it was the Goldberg Variations played by Glenn Gould. Or the Cello suites played by Pablo Casals, Henryk Szeryng playing the Chaconne or Willem Mengelberg conducting the St. Matthew Passion. Maybe it was Stokowski’s arrangement of Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Some probably don’t even know that they are hearing a Bach tune when listening to Paul Simon’s American Tune or Paul McCartney’s Blackbird.
However, I did not have this early positive exposure to Bach’s music — on the contrary, I was scared of it. The first time I played Bach was at the age of 12, at the National Youth Competition in Germany. I performed the E-flat major Sonata with my father accompanying me on the piano. The jury had only two comments: ‘find a better pianist’ and ‘this is not Bach’.
So here is the result of my journey… so far. And for the first time, people might be right in saying: This is not Bach! Indeed, it is not. But it is his spirit, and that’s what matters most to me.”
