Info for J.S.Bach: The Welltempered Clavier, Book I



For nearly twenty years Luca has been the assistant and continuo player of Jordi Savall and his ensembles Hesperion XXI, Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, giving concerts, from the duo to the large ensemble, all over the world. Concurrently, from 1993 Luca Guglielmi has had a busy international career as a soloist of historical keyboards (harpsichord, organ, clavichord, fortepiano), choir master and leader of various ensembles "with original instruments". This recording has been made by one the three remaining original harpsichords of the Hamburg harpsichord maker Christian Zell (1732), which shows the Bach WTC in a very special sound. The 1737 harpsichord was a favourite of Gustav Leonhardt to whose memory this volume is dedicated.

Luca Guglielmi: Bach himself did not see the autograph manuscript as a 'definitive' version. He kept it as an 'open manuscript' on the rack of his harpsichord up to his death, using it as a 'textbook' for the lessons he gave to his students, never ceasing to insert a series of corrections, reworkings, improvements, small variants and even performance instructions. Bach's hands-on approach to his work in progress proves just how modern he actually was and remains. Through a truly 'holistic vision' we can embrace artistic parameters inherited from our 18th-century forebears: a profound, venerable legacy that remains unknown to the ones who approach the musical art on 'scientific' methods based on calculation and measurement.

Luca Guglielmi, piano



Luca Guglielmi
(Turin, Italy, 1977) is renowned for his historically informed interpretations of music of all periods, his wide repertoire and his strong commitment into the study and application of phenomenology of music. He has a great passion for incorporating period style within the traditional orchestral world and creating distinctive and dynamic programs. Luca Guglielmi has a wide repertoire, from Gesualdo to Strawinsky, conducting orchestras and ensembles such as: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra/Orfeus Barockensemble, Orchestra Regionale Toscana, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Orchestra Sinfonica Abruzzese, Orchestra Milano Classica, Arsys Bourgogne, Coro di Torino della RAI, Cappella Musicale di Santa Maria dei Servi di Bologna.

In opera, he has been assistant to conductors such as: Antoni Ros-Marbà, Victor Pablo-Perez, Gottfried von der Goltz, Giovanni Antonini, Jordi Savall for works from Monteverdi to Mozart, working in famous opera houses like: Gran Teatre del Liceu (Barcelona), Teatro Real (Madrid), Teatro Regio (Turin), Styriarte Festival (Graz).

Composer of notable talent, he studied at the Turin's Conservatorio under Alessandro Ruo Rui. He has composed several works for mixed a cappella choir, a format he favours; his compositions have been performed in Italy and abroad by the Turin Vocalensemble (dir. Carlo Pavese), by the Coro Filarmonico “Ruggero Maghini” and by the St Jacobs Chamber Choir (dir. Gary Graden).

The most recent highlight has been a last minute replacement of renowned conductor Reinhard Goebel with Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto and soprano Roberta Mameli, for a concert in the famous Basilica del Santo in Padua (Italy).

Concurrently, from 1993 Luca Guglielmi has had a busy international career as a soloist of historical keyboards (harpsichord, organ, clavichord, fortepiano), choir master and leader of various ensembles "with original instruments". Honourable Mention at the XII International Organ Competition in Bruges, he studied harpsichord with Ton Koopman and Patrizia Marisaldi, organ with Vittorio Bonotto, renaissance counterpoint and historic composition with Sergio Pasteris. For nearly twenty years Luca has been the assistant and continuo player of Jordi Savall and his ensembles Hesperion XXI, Le Concert des Nations and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, giving concerts, from the duo to the large ensemble, all over the world. He has collaborated with artists such as Cecilia Bartoli, Sara Mingardo, Barbara Bonney, Philippe Jarrousky, Giuliano Carmignola, Paolo Pandolfo, Ottavio Dantone, Gabriele Cassone, Paul O'Dette, Katia and Marielle Labéque and ensembles like Il Giardino Armonico, Ensemble Zefiro, Ensemble La Fenice, The Rare Fruits Council, Freiburger Barockorchester, RAI Turin Orchestra (under Jeffrey Tate, Roberto Abbado, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos).

Luca Guglielmi has a wide discography of more than 50 CDs, among them 18 solo titles devoted to a repertoire from Frescobaldi to Mozart, for such labels as: Accent, cpo, Vivat, Hänssler Classics, Stradivarius and Elegia. His recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations and Pasquini's Sonate da gravecembalo have been awarded with the "Diapason d'or"; his last organ recording Bach in Montecassino, for the English label Vivat, received an "Editor's Choice" from the Gramophone magazine.

Luca Guglielmi's dedication to educational projects has led him to teach in several summer early music courses and master classes in Italy (Pamparato and Urbino), France (Barbaste) and Spain (San Feliu de Guixols), basing his teaching exclusively on original treatises and other historical sources. From 2013 he is professor of harpsichord, fortepiano and chamber music at the Escola Superior de Musica de Catalunya (ESMuC), Barcelona.
