Rafał Blechacz (piano)

“Blechacz is a superlative pianist” BBC Music Magazine

Celebrated by his Chopin awarded recordings and cited by critics as one of those talents that only come along every few decades - has now turned to Bach. The now 31-year-old winner of the 2005 International Chopin Piano Competition, has been immersed in Bach since his childhood and has cultivated a strikingly natural eloquence in his mature interpretations of the composer’s keyboard works.

This is the perfect album to show his versatility and fine knowledge of the works of the composer.

Rafal’s interpretation flows not least from his formative experience as an organist. Young Rafał cut his musical teeth on Bach’s principal instrument, playing organ for several years before turning full time to piano. In addition to playing for services at the main church in his hometown of Nakło nad Notecią, he also gave occasional recitals there long after becoming a pianist.

Sinfonietta Cracovia

In January 2015, Moog Music, the 60-year-old analogue synthesizer company, announced that for the first time in more than 30 years, it would once again build the large format modular synthesizers first introduced by its founder, Dr. Robert Moog in 1964. 2015, the 50th anniversary year of Moog synthesizers also marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Dr. Robert ‘Bob’ Moog (1934-2005), inventor of the Moog synthesizer. To mark these anniversaries, Sony Classical is issuing ‘Bach to Moog’ – a brand-new album showcasing the reissued Moog Modular Synthesizer as well as the modern generation of Moog synthesizers, which presents the glorious works of Johann Sebastian Bach in a compelling and contemporary way. The album is produced by American-born composer, arranger and record producer Craig Leon, famous for his work with The Ramones and Blondie, as well as his work in the classical arena with such leading artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Joshua Bell and Sir James Galway. On Bach to Moog, Leon blends his love and mastery of classical music, electronic music and synthesizers and is joined by acclaimed British classical violinist, Jennifer Pike (the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition) alongside the Sinfonietta Cracovia.

“An utterly exhilarating listening experience which will captivate old fans and newbies alike…ably supported by Sinfonietta Cracovia and with Pike so obviously getting the project, Leon manages to leave you with the sense you're hearing this music for the first time and having an absolute ball into the bargain.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2015

Piers Lane (piano)

Piers Lane gambols delightfully through the twentieth century in this album of encores, party pieces and a few pianophile rarities, ranging from Dame Myra Hess’s unforgettable arrangement of Bach’s Jesu, joy of man’s desiring to Dudley Moore’s equally unforgettable Beethoven pastiche.

This album includes first recordings of, among others, John Ireland’s Ballerina and Mark Saya’s Offenbach/Chopin conflation Barcarolles. A number of these pieces are by Australian composers who wrote for Piers himself. His unbounded virtuosity and joy in the music is clearly an inspiration, and is evident throughout the recording.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Lane’s joie de vivre is infectious in the more flamboyant pieces. He loves these pieces, and isn’t coy about telling us that we can, and should, love them too. Flamboyance and poetry are nicely balanced, and Lane attacks the cheesier numbers with such relish that resistance is futile.” The Arts Desk, 12th October 2013

“Although some works are serious, some are dark, and some are very silly, they hang together by dint of the pianist’s personality...Like the disc itself, the notes are amiable, approachable, witty and a pleasure to loaf around with.” MusicWeb International, 1st November 2013

“Lane in wonderful debonair mode here, sparkling through a personal encore selection from Jamaican Rumba to a Toccata by his own father, and from Myra Hess to Dudley Moore.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2013 *****

“A pot pourri of pianistic palate-cleansers and party pieces...there was just the right balance between the flashy pieces and the slower, more contemplative numbers to keep me entertained all the way through...There’s certainly no shortage of impressive virtuosity, including perhaps the best-known item on the disc, Arthur Benjamin’s Jamaican Rumba, which is despatched with great aplomb and panache.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, 2nd September 2013

Arthur Fiedler took great pride in bringing classical music to the world at large. While Leonard Bernstein was busy with his Young People’s Concerts with the New York Philharmonic, Fiedler and his Boston Pops Orchestra (most of the members drawn from the Boston Symphony) gave concerts of popular classics that became a fixture on America’s musical calendar. They made several recordings for Polydor / Deutsche Grammophon and the ever-popular Christmas disc is here reissued with built-in bonus tracks by Bach, Humperdinck and Tchaikovsky, in a sleigh ride, taking the listener from a delightful pot-pourri of carols (‘A Christmas Festival’) arranged by Leroy Anderson to Baroque hits in lush orchestrations to high-energy American Christmas songs – all arranged sumptuously for orchestra.

Stuttgarter Kammerorchester


Karl Münchinger recorded all the major orchestral and choral pieces by Bach for Decca, and over a period of some 30 years (from the Mono to the Digital eras), five of the Cantatas. All boast remarkable soloists from their eras. Suzanne Danco sings the two solo cantatas, BWV 51 and 202, recorded in 1953 and released on CD for the first time. Elly Ameling and Helen Watts are soloists in the early cantata, BWV 10. And the digital recordings of Ein feste Burg and Wachet auf feature Julia Hamari and Tom Krause. The collection is rounded off with two of the most popular orchestral arrangements from the Bach cantata repertoire – Jesu, joy of man’s desiring and Sheep may safely graze.

“Fascinating to chart Munchinger's development as a Bach conductor over 30 years - from the early stiffness of BWV 202 to the surefooted majesty of Ein' feste Burg.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 ***

“Suzanne Danco’s lively and musicianly performances in both Cantatas gave me much pleasure” Gramophone Magazine

“excellently transparent and well-detailed Decca digital recording and a fine team of soloists … the chorus’ vigorous contribution is given striking body and presence” Gramophone Magazine (BWV 80 and 140)

“The smoothest and sweetest of string playing” Gramophone Magazine (Jesu, joy of man’s desiring, Sheep may safely graze)

Simone Dinnerstein (piano)

Debut CD on Sony Classical from this critically acclaimed New York classical pianist. This is her first orchestral disc & features x15 recordings. Described by the NY Times as "An utterly distinctive voice in the forest of Bach interpretation".

“one must acknowledge Dinnerstein's energetic execution, plus the unusual clarity and point of her left-hand work...As a Bach pianist, Dinnerstein is obviously serious, and has fingers to burn” Gramophone Magazine, February 2011

“Kempff's fastidious arrangement of "Nun Freut Euch, Lieben Christen Gmein" offers the most dazzling display of her virtuosity...the stately calm of the 5th Keyboard Concerto's "Largo" has an almost weightless poise, while the English Suite No 3 offers an engrossing journey between styles” The Independent, 14th January 2011 ****

“there is nothing exaggerated or self-seeking about her technical display. Where she excels is in the slow movements...the involvement and emotional commitment is total...Dinnerstein's is a fascinating and soulful approach of which I hope to hear more, especially in the transcriptions to which her romantic temperament and depth of sonorities are ideally suited.” International Record Review, January 2011

“Few current pianists surge forward in Bach with such light-fingered energy and joy; listening to her finale in the fifth keyboard concerto or the start of the third English Suite you almost get giddy. She’s equally individual in ruminating mode...Dinnerstein embraces [Jesu, Joy] calmly and lovingly — the perfect close to this uneven, engaging, idiosyncratic album.” The Times, 21st January 2011 ****

“[the disc] gives a good sense of her generally romantic approach to playing the composer's music on a modern concert grand, in which expressive warmth and beauty of tone seem to be prized above other qualities. It's a style that's perfectly suited to the three chorale-prelude arrangements by great 20th-century pianists” The Guardian, 27th January 2011 ***

“Dinnerstein has Argerich's touch: her Bach swings. The Suite's gigue has jazz momentum and the F minor concerto finale sounds unstoppable...The whole, beautifully conceived programme is shot with emotion, none more than the unfashionable transcriptions...This irresistable pianist knows her mind and expresses it.” Classic FM Magazine, March 2011 *****
