EDITORS’ NOTES

J.S. Bach reworked his and other composers’ music for each of his concertos for two, three and four keyboards. David Fray brings together a crack team of three fellow pianists and chamber orchestra for fresh, vital takes on these exhilarating works. Each concerto bristles with energy, the players clearly inspiring each other with their snappy articulation and sheer energy, all of which sparkles in the resonant acoustics of the studio (a beautiful chapel in Toulouse). You can hear their magical interplay in the final movement of the Concerto for 4 Pianos—a transcription of a Vivaldi concerto—while the slow movement of the two-keyboard concerto BWV 1062 is utterly sublime.
