I unfortunately never met her. I saw her play a couple of times, but I never had the chance to actually meet her. I would have loved to tell her about the many moving and even exhilarating moments her records afforded me. But then I would only be repeating what many people already told her, and I doubt I would have the nerve to speak so freely about emotions. \n\nFrom her playing and from the interviews I have read, she seems a very kind, very human and very true person. \n\nThere was a very long interview in Diapason about 10 years ago, which was very moving because of her absolute candour.\n\nWhen playing Bach (her Buxtehude doesn't really convince me) she infuses the music with humanity – Christian humanity – which is absent in all other major players. I find this a plus, as I do not really think Bach was a mystic. For such emotions we have to go back to the 17th or 16th Centuries (not mentioning the Middle Ages). \n\nI will venture to say that, among all the great performers, she seems to be more at ease with Bach: she just expresses Bach through herself, no masks, no cognitive a priori: just the music, seen by a humble person who thinks Bach should be heard and not her.
