 New life c/o Pianos March 18, 2014 By Gerald L. (Manhattan Beach, CA) See All My Reviews "WOW! The ensemble truly breathed new life into BWV 1061 the double concerto in C. I had heard this several times before on different recordings, mostly with harpsichord. Purists may scoff; I love piano. The fugue comes alive as I never heard it before, with a big energetic finish. The Adagio is entrancing, time-suspending. Clean, sympathatic transitions between the pianos. Just beautiful overall." Report Abuse
 BACH THE BEST December 9, 2013 By Sandi Z. (Broomfield, CO) See All My Reviews "THIS CD IS ENCHANTING.. I COULD LIVE ON A ISLAND WITH NOTHING BUT BACH MUSIC THE MULTIPLE PIANOS REALLY PUT YOU INTO HIS MUSIC LISTENING TO THIS CD IS LIKE A MEDITATION. SANDI Z." Report Abuse
 Terrific recording! November 2, 2012 By chad henry (aurora, CO) See All My Reviews "First heard a cut from this on my local NPR station and was swept away, both by the composition and the recording--the artistry, interpretation, excitement of the music--Bach's music here almost has a Philip Glass-like perpetual motion feel. Well worth owning for anyone who loves Bach, Baroque, keyboards, or the plain novelty of music arranged beautifully for four pianos." Report Abuse
