Firma Melodiya presents an album of J.S. Bach's sonatas for cello and clavier recorded by Alexander Knyazev and French organist Jean Guillou. "Knyazev is an artist who has an incredible sense of musicality, elemental thinking and a phenomenally perfect technique", wrote BBC Music Magazine. Alexander Knyazev graduated from the Moscow Conservatory where he studied cello and the Nizhny Novgorod Conservatory where he studied organ. Bach's music has always been in the artist's focus of interests. "I try to find an interpretation of Bach's music that must, first of all, be very living. It seems to me that Bach's music is great because it's very modern. It shouldn't be turned to a "museum" by any means", Knyazev says. Jean Guillou is one of the best French organists of today. He is also known as a composer, organ designer and author of numerous transcriptions and books on organ music. Along with many other instrumental opuses, Bach wrote the cello sonatas when he was in service of Prince Leopold, a passionate music lover and amateur cellist, in 1717 to 1723, in Köthen. The two musicians coming from different countries and generations perform Bach's music as naturally and organically as a synthesis of tradition and novelty, summing up the accomplishments of musical baroque and looking to the future with optimism at the same time.
