 The best ever recorded April 18, 2013 By John C. (Pinawa, Manitoba) 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
