Bach: Partita No 2 in C minor, BWV 826 (18:02)
Eldar Djangirov, piano
Described by The New York Times as “an ebullient impressionist,” Eldar Djangirov moved from the former Soviet Union to Kansas City at age 10. He quickly gained a reputation as a child prodigy and signed to Sony Masterworks at 17. In 2005, Djangirov released a jazz recording featuring Michael Brecker and John Patitucci. The album earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. Now, Djangirov has released his debut classical recording, playing music of Bach, Brahms and Prokofiev.
