About the album

For this release, pianist Dina Ugorskaja has recorded Book I and II of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier in Cooperation with Bayerische Rundfunk in Munich.

On interpreting these works, Dina writes: “One essential aspect in this project was the experience of returning to my early encounters with Bach’s music: to try to remember what it had been like when I heard it for the first time. I tried to free myself from certain clichés that had ‘gotten stuck’ in a series of interpretations. This was particularly difficult in Volume I, since I had often heard those pieces in the hands of outstanding performers.”

Dina Ugorskaja gave her debut performance when she was only seven years old in the Philharmonic Hall at Saint Petersburg. Not only is she an outstanding pianist, she is also a vocalist specializing in early music, and has written a number of chamber works.

In September 2019 Dina Ugorskaja passed away in the age of 46, and left her recordings as a testament.

Artist(s)

Born in Leningrad (now once more Saint Petersburg) into a family of Jewish origin, Dina Ugorskaja
started learning piano and composition at a very early age. In 1990 the family moved to Germany. Dina
studied in Berlin and in Detmold, and she is currently living in Munich and Vienna. Anatol Ugorski and
Nerine Barrett were among her teachers, and she also received important counsel from András Schiff
and Peter Gülke.

Dina Ugorskaja has performed in many outstanding venues including the Leipzig
Gewandhaus, the Stuttgart Liederhalle, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Sala Verdi in Milan and a number
of festivals: Kassel, Heimbach (“Spannungen”) and Feldkirch (the “Schubertiade”). Her solo and chamber
music performances have been recorded live by WDR broadcasting (Cologne), BR (Munich) and by
Radio France.

She has made appearances inter alia with the Auryn Quartet, with Maximilian Hornung and
with Natalia Prishepenko. Dina Ugorskaja’s CD releases have been nominated for the International Classical
Music Awards and for the German Record Critics’ Prize. From October 2016 she has a professorship
for piano at the Vienna University of Music and the Performing Arts.

Dina Ugorskaja passed away in the age of 46, and left her recordings as a testament.
