Tatiana Nikolayeva was a renowned interpreter of Bach on the piano. It was her playing of Bach at the Leipzig International Bach Competition in 1950 which inspired Shostakovich to write his 24 Preludes and Fugues for her. She was known to have had an immense repertoire and her Bach performances were hailed as musical, insightful, colorful, expressive and unique. The live Leipzig recital revived by meloclassic for Rundfunk der DDR has never been published before.
