Reviews

‘Malcolm takes full advantage of his Goff instrument to avoid any suggestion of monotony … in keeping with [his] generally large-scale virtuoso conception of what is, after all, a large-scale virtuoso work.’ Gramophone, May 1963

‘Mr. Malcolm’s performance of the Goldbergs does not disappoint; not only does his infinite variety of registration maintain a constant interest, he also uses these possibilities to bring out bring out many facets of the music not otherwise noticed.’ 1964 World Catalogue of Bach Recordings
