Pierre-Laurent Aimard, the French pianist who last year embarked on a personal artistic journey with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, digging deep beneath the surface of one of the composer's greatest works, released the first book of The Well-tempered Clavier on Deutsche Grammophon. The album presents his mature thoughts on The Well-tempered Clavier Book I, embracing everything from the sublime stillness of its opening Prelude in C major to the labyrinthine twists of the final Fugue in B minor.

Here Aimard talks Boulez, Harnoncourt, Messiaen and Ravel on this audioBoom podcast. LISTEN
