BBC Music Magazine

October 2012


“Barenboim exploits with pianistic brilliance the full tonal range of a Steinway - sacrificing, at times, the directness and speaks-for-itself clarity of Bach's counterpoint.”

MusicWeb International

November 2012

“He doesn't countenance any harpsichord imitation...the effect, to those yet to hear him in the work, is one of unalloyed indulgence of the full range of the modern piano. It's an orchestral approach...Within these clear aesthetic parameters, the performance can be savoured as a technically assured and convincing examination of a rich sound world.”
