Tatyana Ryzhkova performs Prelude from BWV 998 by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750). I mainly posted this one for the spectacular setting of the video, although the playing is also good, maybe a bit too Romantic but that is more a question of taste. Hopefully she posts the Fugue and Allegro too. Ryzhkova was born in 1986 in Minsk, the capital of Belarus. She has a gigantic online following including 39,000 subscribers on her Youtube. Although I’ve seen some people criticize her for racking up the follows with video production and a nice smile, I suspect they are mainly just bitter of her success. However, with two solid albums behind her this would be a good time for her to stop busting out the classics and do an interesting original project or album of commissions. Something to get away from constant classics. She did have a little suite by Sevriens on her first CD and maybe her concert programmes have more, I don’t know. Nevertheless, for someone born in 1986 she has done very well for herself and is only at the beginning of her career. You can check out her CD’s and other stuff too, Tatyana Ryzhkova on Amazon.com.
