Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In this impressive set, Truls Mørk confidently embraces most of the essentials of 18th-century performance – clear tone and articulation, careful delineation of rhythmic structure . . . and the use of phrasing and dynamic shading to present the character of each piece. . . . [T]he style of each piece releases a creative spirit allowing him to play freely and flexibly while keeping the structure clear. . . . [T]he Fourth Suite demonstrates how rubato can bring figurative, patterned music to life without impeding its forward flow. Mørk’s chord playing is one of the most impressive aspects of his technique . . . . [T]hese are commanding performances, inspired by the composer’s own unquenchable spirit." -- Duncan Druce, Gramophone "In this impressive set, Truls Mørk confidently embraces most of the essentials of 18th-century performance – clear tone and articulation, careful delineation of rhythmic structure . . . and the use of phrasing and dynamic shading to present the character of each piece. . . .
