Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a thoughtful, balanced, and beautiful recording, where everything seems to stand in the right place. Overall, the playing is technically excellent and effortless. The two brothers play with care and confidence, with expressive intonation, letting Bach's wisdom shine through.

– MusicWeb International

The Katona Twins have been called the world’s best-known classical guitar duo. Their technique is fabulous and with the excellent hi-res surround offered by Channel Classics, this becomes a wonderful album for music lovers, even those who may look askance at Bach arrangements.
