 Great Recording- A Real Classic July 29, 2016 By Henry S. (Springfield, VA) See All My Reviews "I agree wholeheartedly with John Crosthwaite's comments; he has captured the spirit of this great recording nicely. Bach's concertos for multiple pianos have a perpetual motion quality to them- the music never seems to take any sort of pause. The fact that these recordings date from the 1960's should be no deterrent whatsoever. The sound is remarkably clean and fresh, the pianists are really in synch throughout, and the irresistible momentum embedded in all of these works make this recording a true classic, in my opinion. Great stuff, and obviously strongly recommended." Report Abuse
 The best ever recorded April 18, 2013 By John Crosthwaite (Pinawa, MB) See All My Reviews "I've heard other, more recent recordings of these 4-, and 6-hand piano concertos but always come back to Robert, Gaby and Jean Casadesus to convey the real feeling within these Bach compositions. No other versions express the sheer enthusiasm of what these three great pianists achieve." Report Abuse
