Notes and Tones

Nice to see New York Times chief music critic Anthony Tommasini covering Dan Tepfer’s performance of his “Golbderg Variations/Variations” at (le) Poisson Rouge. Tepfer’s recording was my best for 2011, and if you haven’t heard it, it’s both audacious and accomplished, a run through of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” and Tepfer’s own improvisational responses. It’s rewarding to see Tommasini point out what I did as well, that Tepfer’s Bach playing is as superior as his improvising. Buy the CD here.
