Borbála Dobozy | J. S. Bach: Preludes, Inventions and Sinfonias – BMC Records release concert
Johann Sebastian Bach: 18 Preludes
Johann Sebastian Bach: 15 Inventions
Johann Sebastian Bach: 15 Sinfonias
Concert in two parts, with intermission
- Borbála Dobozy – harpsichord
This year marks 300 years since Bach finished composing his Inventions and Sinfonias. Part of the power and charm of these concentrated movements is Bach's ability to combine intense emotion with constructive musical thinking. It is this cosmos, at once transparent and dense, that Borbála Dobozy presents on her latest album, balancing precision and poetry, brilliant technique and vivid characters. Her playing remains free of extremes and mannerisms, while marking a unique direction in the maze of differentiated performance practices. With over 60,000 Spotify plays per month, the previous part of Dobozy's Bach trilogy, Wohltemperiertes Klavier – among the peaks of keyboard music – is one of the most successful releases in the history of BMC Records.
Tickets are available for 2500 HUF on the spot,

J. S. Bach: 12 and 6 Preludes, Inventions and Sinfonias
Borbála Dobozy – harpsichord
Listening to or playing the Inventions, the Sinfonias, and naturally the 18 little preludes on this recording, we must be aware that a deepening of the intellectual content of the music, and thus its immanent transcendent meaning, is only possible if we combine the feelings and their intensity with constructive musical ideas. For this art (and this is particularly true of the oeuvre of J. S. Bach) can truly only be understood through the imitation of the work of God. Creation without invention is impossible. But what do we mean by invention? Invention is the sustaining of ideas, the intuiting of things as they appear at a higher level than that of experience, and the physical and metaphysical polar balance of perceptible forms is restored. When the inaudible becomes audible, when the maestro visits the heavens, and there he takes notes on the valid musical forms he will follow down here on Earth. (by Salamon Kamp)
