Gramophone Magazine

July 2009

“If the reflective and beautifully nuanced opening of Liebster Jesu is an example of Suzuki's genuinely deeply felt identification with this music…”

BBC Music Magazine

September 2009


“…a programme demonstrating Bach's astonishing variety and imagination in musical structures, instrumental tone-colours and response to texts. BWV 72, for instance, opens with spine-tingling energy, instruments and voices in floridly elaborated lines over a slow, powerful harmonic foundation. It's followed by two violins and continuo weaving their trio sonata texture around Robin Blaze's alluring countertenor, while remaining wholly independent of him melodically.”

International Record Review

“a recording which shows Suzuki maturing along with Bach … another fine instalment in this most consistent of series”
