The Well Tempered Clavier, Book II

Craig Sheppard,

This 2 CD set—specially priced—is Craig Sheppard’s fifth recording for Roméo Records, and his fourth Bach release on the label. Last year saw the release of Sheppard’s Book 1 of the Well Tempered Clavier. Book 2 has been eagerly awaited by critics who reviewed the first installment and music lovers who found Book 1 so overwhelmingly enjoyable.



Craig Sheppard’s previous Bach releases on Roméo Records—Partitas, (Roméo Records 7248/9) & Inventions/Sinfonias (Romeo Records 7255) received widespread critical acclaim:

“There are too many delightful details to savor. Sheppard’s Partitas leave a fresh imprint upon each rehearing, and they deserve serious consideration…” - classicstoday .com (Rating: 10/8)

“Sheppard’s Bach, like his Beethoven, is revelatory…a lyrial impulse that borders on the ecstatic. Sheppard’s partitas belong in every serious collection for what they reveal to us about Bach and the music.” - Fanfare

“…his shining courage and conviction, however provocative, command your attention at virtually every point.” “…infinite variety is conveyed by Craig Sheppard in performances brimming with zest and affection.”
- Gramophone

“Bach playing of notable artistry.”- (Roméo Records 7248/9) International Record Review

“Bach playing of no mean stature. I was engrossed by just about everything Sheppard does.”
“…extraordinarily compelling playing.” - International Record Review
