Bach International Competition in Leipzig was her encounter with Shostakovich, which turned into a lifelong friendship. With her account of Bach's music, Nikolayeva inspired Shostakovich to compose his 24 Preludes and Fugues, which she was the first to perform. Notwithstanding the small number of Tatiana Nikolayeva's performances recorded for Supraphon on magnetic tapes, their significance is indispensable indeed, as they represent virtually the oldest preserved testimony to the immense mastery of the legendary pianist, before she was discovered by the whole world.
Prague, the s: the earliest records of Tatiana Nikolayeva's boundless mastery.

They have been transcribed and arranged for orchestra as well. Scholars believe that Bach intended the works to be considered as a systematically conceived cycle, rather than an arbitrary series of pieces. Compared to Bach's other suite collections, the cello suites are the most consistent in order of their movements. In addition, to achieve a symmetrical design and go beyond the traditional layout, Bach inserted intermezzo or galanterie movements in the form of pairs between the sarabande and the gigue. Only five movements in the entire set of suites are completely non-chordal, meaning that they consist only of a single melodic line.
These are the second minuet of Suite No. The second gavotte of Suite No. The prelude, mainly consisting of arpeggiated chords , is probably the best known movement from the entire set of suites and is regularly heard on television and in films. The Prelude consists of two parts, the first of which has a strong recurring theme that is immediately introduced in the beginning.
The second part is a scale -based cadenza movement that leads to the final, powerful chords. The subsequent allemande contains short cadenzas that stray away from this otherwise very strict dance form.

The first minuet contains demanding chord shiftings and string crossings. The Prelude of this suite consists of an A—B—A—C form, with A being a scale-based movement that eventually dissolves into an energetic arpeggio part; and B, a section of demanding chords. It then returns to the scale theme, and ends with a powerful and surprising chord movement. The allemande is the only movement in the suites that has an up-beat consisting of three semiquavers instead of just one, which is the standard form.
This notation, common in pre- Classical music, is sometimes known as a partial key signature. The key is also difficult on cello due to the lack of resonant open strings. The very peaceful sarabande is quite obscure about the stressed second beat, which is the basic characteristic of the 3 4 dance, since, in this particular sarabande, almost every first beat contains a chord, whereas the second beat most often does not. Some chords must be simplified when playing with standard tuning, but some melodic lines become easier as well.
The Prelude is written in an A—B form, and is a French overture. It begins with a slow, emotional movement that explores the deep range of the cello. After that comes a fast and very demanding single-line fugue that leads to the powerful end.
This suite is most famous for its intimate sarabande, which is the second of only four movements in all six suites that doesn't contain any chords. Mstislav Rostropovich describes it as the essence of Bach's genius; Paul Tortelier views it as an extension of silence. Yo-Yo Ma played this movement on September 11, at the site of the World Trade Center , while the first of the names of the dead were read in remembrance on the first anniversary of the attack.
The fifth suite is also exceptional as its courante and gigue are in the French style, rather than the Italian form of the other five suites.
