Piano music by Bach and Pärt

SOMM Celeste [SOMMCD 0186] – 1 October 2018
Piano music by Bach and Pärt

Two sublime voices presented together for the first time on disc, in a poetic and probing coupling of the solo piano music of JS Bach and Arvo Pärt.

Bach: Two and Three Part Inventions, Praeambulum in C
Pärt: Für Anna Maria, Für Alina, Variationen zur Gesundung von Arinuschka

“The sheer clarity of Williams’ Bach – two absolutely equal hands, voices chasing each other playfully – lends qualities of purity and truthfulness to her readings… Williams has the ability to mesmerise in Pärt, creating stillness, even timelessness… this is a magnificently stimulating concept, brilliantly realised.    — Colin Clarke, International Piano

“The spontaneity of the performances, as well as the beauty of the piano tone, … linger in the mind.”    — BBC Music Magazine

“Williams’ brilliantly fluid technique and unassuming mastery of the piano is to the fore…” — Classic FM

“There’s romantic fire lurking under the surface. No 3 [D899] is almost Brahmsian in its achingly beautiful sweep, and there’s a delicious, dark brooding beneath the delicacy of No 1, D935.” — Stephen Pritchard, The Guardian

“We are convinced that Cordelia’s debut recording…will serve to win her a place among the élite of the young rising stars of today.” — Siva Oke, Director, SOMM Recordings
