Notes and Editorial Reviews

You would almost surely have to go back to Gould to hear Bach-playing like this. Rangell sets himself apart from the crowd by being not just distinguished but truly distinctive.

Andrew Rangell's Bach interpretations have drawn high praise from an international range of critics and piano devotees. Writing of his recent recording of Book 1 of the Well Tempered Clavier ( Bridge 9246), the New York Times states that Rangell's "free-spirited Bach is distinguished by its powerful drive and intensity and a remarkable articulation that illuminates contrapuntal intricacies with microscopic clarity."

The critic in Fanfare raves that "You would almost
Read more surely have to go back to Gould to hear Bach-playing like this. Rangell sets himself apart from the crowd by being not just distinguished but truly distinctive. Highest recommendation possible."

This highly anticipated release of Rangell's interpretation of the French Suites" is accompanied by his singular reading of Schoenberg's striking Suite, Op. 25.

Other Bach performances by Rangell on Bridge include his Bach recital ( Bridge 9180) and his early music recital entitled "A Bridge to Bach" ( Bridge 9216).
