Zhu Xiao-Mei Bach: The French Suites 180g Import Vinyl 2LP
Johann Sebastian Bach plays a key role in the life Zhu Xiao-Mei – she is today one of the most significant interpreters of his music.
Recorded at Mendelssohnsaal of the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig in May 2016, pianist Zhu Xiao-Mei performs The French Suites by J.S. Bach.
"It is with children in mind that I recorded these French Suites, always having heartfelt simplicity and purity in their mind. Children see the world with hope, optimism, and cast in light – much like Miró sees the world. I find a childlike purity in him, similar to what I hear in the French Suites.
"There is a quote by Miró that touches me enormously and makes me think a lot whenever I play, as it reflects something that may be the most difficult aspect of musical interpretation – and of art in general: "To gain freedom is to gain simplicity." - Zhu Xiao-Mei
