Reviews

‘cool and poised … telling in its sense of controlled power’ [Bach]; ‘tangy and spirited’ [Bull] Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

‘a marvelous Bach player who iconoclastically sweeps the mighty C major Toccata, Adagio, & Fugue BWV 564 and C minor Passacaglia & Fugue BWV 582 of their weighty cobwebs and restores their improvisatory impetus’ 10/10 ClassicsToday.com
