Description: In the early 19th century, Mendelssohn was not the only composer looking back at the great German baroque composers. Moscheles wrote an Hommage à Handel for piano duo as well as the op. 137a recorded here, published in 1863. Although such composers as Schumann and Rubinstein had declared their highest admiration for Bach's Well-tempered Clavier, the general public did not know it. Moscheles set out to change that, providing a cello part to ten of Bach's preludes. Romantic and Baroque collectors will enjoy the dialogue Moscheles has with Bach. Ramon Jaffé (cello), Elisaveta Blumina (piano).
