Sviatoslav Richter plays Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1 Prelude and Fugue No. 8 in E flat minor, BWV 853 from Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1983 film Nostalgia, dedicated to the director’s mother.


  • Jonathon says:

    What is this? Tarkovsky didn’t use this music in the film. In these scenes there is haunting silence broken only by the sounds of nature, or a folksong being sung in the distance.

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    Intrigued by the white horse it doesn’t move wonder if it is stuffed?

  • Greg Bottini says:

    Gorgeous Bach playing from a master pianist.
