Listen now: Rosalyn Tureck plays Bach

Rosalyn Tureck
Pianist and scholar Rosalyn Tureck

It's pretty much impossible to study the music of Johann Sebastian Bach without coming across Rosalyn Tureck (1913-2003).

Her meticulous research about Bach influenced everyone from Glenn Gould to Sharon Isbin.

Gould famously said that Tureck was the only pianist he admired, and Isbin edited Bach's lute suites under Tureck's guidance.

We've created an on-demand playlist featuring just some of Tureck's many recordings of Bach's music. It includes all six partitas, both books of the Well-Tempered Clavier, the Goldberg Variations and much more.
