«Bach is my life, night and day! ... In the past, Maestro Berio used to tell me Bach was all us musicians' father. With Maestro

Andrea Bacchetti is a Bachian interpreter with very clear ideas: he plays his music on the piano, building it as a musician, without
need of winks to the past. Brilliance and enamel, virtuosity in speed, but above all character ... a personal physiognomy, the

Andrea Bacchetti has accomplished a Bach path more than twenty years long by dwelling on the places so variously marked by this
extraordinary landscape evoked by the keyboard, places that testify to the brilliant breadth of view with which the musician observed
the reality of his time in all the different facets, transferring their characters in a language that was fixed in the sign of his
miraculous absoluteness. The so sensitive traits emerge from the book 2 of the «Well-Tempered Harpsichord» that Bacchetti
proposed in recent concerts and recorded in a double CD by ArtHausMusik. It is an important, challenging milestone for the Genoese
pianist, who is recognizable in the richness of his expressive value that emerges from reading this work ...
Bach's harpsichord in Bacchetti's sensitiveness
Gazzetta di Parma - March 28th, 2022 (Gian Paolo Minardi)
FULL ARTICLE (Italian)
Bacchetti está influido en alguna medida por las prácticas historicistas y, aunque utiliza un piano moderno (en el que no imita el
exagerado staccato que otros pianistas utilizan para parecerse a un harpsicordio), la expresividad es lograda a base de ornamentaciones
y nunca exagera el poder de sostenimiento de las nota, es decir, somos conscientes de que estamos oyendo música del siglo XVIII.
Su Bach es refrescante y estimulante; su legato es económico y suave y no abusa del rubato; su rango dinámico es muy amplio.
Es vigoroso (e incluso algo crudo) en el manejo de las acentuaciones con la mano izquierda, pero siempre evita los excesos, el toque
excesivamente muscular o una mano izquierda muy insistente. Bacchetti favorece una aproximación lírica y de elasticidad expresiva a
estas piezas (muy alejada de la interpretación de Gould, aunque similar en su querencia por extremos de tempi, o de la literalidad
austera de los alemanes de antaño) con un sonido bello, más rico en texturas que Schiff o Hewitt, dando mucha animación al contrastar
velocidades de ejecución con energía rítmica y elegancia ...
There are some historicist practices that influenced Bacchetti, and although he uses a modern piano (although he does not imitate
the exaggerated staccato that other pianists use to recall a harpsichord), he gets expressiveness through ornament, he never exaggerates
his power in sustaining the notes, and we are always aware that we are hearing Eighteenth Century music. His Bach is fresh and stimulating;
his legate sounds thrifty and flowing and does not abuse the "rubato"; his dynamic range is very wide. Bacchetti is vigorous in handling
accents with his left hand, but he always avoids the excesses of an overly-muscled playing or a too insistent left hand. He prefers a lyrical
and expressively elastic approach to these pieces (that is far from Gould's interpretation, though similar in his predilection for extreme
tenses, or the old Germans' austere literalism) with a beautiful, richer in texture than Schiff or Hewitt, sound. Bacchetti gives lots of
animation by contrasting speed of execution with his rhythmic energy and his elegance. ...

Il Secolo XIX - May 20th, 2022 (Edoardo Meoli)
... the monumental corpus of preludes and fugues of the Book II of the Well-Tempered Clavier was challenged by the Genoese
pianist with remarkable personality, clarity of intent, and coherence. The distinctive feature in his approach is that bit
of freedom, and sometimes real originality, without pretending nor affecting, and above all never indulging himself into
extravagance ... you could find balance almost everywhere, as in his time choices, that were almost never extreme, as in his
dosage of legatos and staccatos within sentences, the result of a choice that never distorts the musical sense ... Anyway,
this has not prevented the Genoese pianist to avoid a sterile and anodyne objectivism, carrying out, when necessary, courageous
choices above all in the ascending movement of the melody, especially in the fugues. His important choices repay when you
listen to this work, an experience that is never boring thanks to Bacchetti's spasmodic attention to create real and proper
"characters" from Bach's themes and to avoid dangerous processes of pure musical abstraction ...

Andrea Bacchetti has made J.S.Bach's music a fundamental reference and that is a fact that has been well known for many years.
In fact, listening to him on this excellent recording of the Book II of the Well-Tempered Clavier, BWV 870-893, that was released
in a double CD by Arthaus Musik in March 2022, you can immerse yourself in his musical world where his search for mathematical
perfection has been evidently combined with a deep expressiveness. ... Probably no one has devoted so much time to reach the
almost maniacal perfection in Bach's keyboard works as Bacchetti did. Both in the 24 Preludes and in the respective Fugues, he
always comes to a solution to find a proper balance to every phrase. ... We recommend everyone to purchase this excellent CD.

... It is reasonable to imagine that Bacchetti's choice of the Second Book of the 24 new Preludes and Fugues derives from his
desire to demonstrate how we have to interpret Bach's writing, even better if it is filtered by a Bösendorfer's sonority and
"sensitivity", as a freedom-imagination that the musical substance - indeed, the character - clarifies and directs.
Bacchetti is the clear bearer of this idea ... his range of staccatos, his taste for agogic oscillation, his study that melts
naturally ... all this comes with his rigorous musical consequentiality that is counterbalanced by an impetuous inspiration
without bordering on extravagance.
