Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recipient of the Penguin Rosette.

"Bowyer gives the four deceptively simple Duets sparkling registrations to make a foil for the weighty power of the closing St. Anne's Fugue, which holds the listener from the first bar to the last... He ends with a superbly eloquent performance of the great Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs [2003/4 edition]
