Bach: Keyboard Concertos Nos. 3, 5, 6 & 7

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
Murray Perahia, who completes his journey through Bach's keyboard concertos with this disc, has firmly established himself as a great Bach pianist, to be mentioned along with Glenn Gould or Andras Schiff. Perahia's two volumes of the English Suites appeared in 1998 and '99, but his astonishing Goldberg Variations, released in 2000, was the true clarion call for those who linked the pianist primarily with Mozart and Chopin to sit up and take notice. Now we have been blessed with a pair of delightful discs featuring the seven keyboard concertos. This second volume the first came out in 2001 includes the 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th concertos, each of which is a re-tooled version ...

Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
Murray Perahia, who completes his journey through Bach's keyboard concertos with this disc, has firmly established himself as a great Bach pianist, to be mentioned along with Glenn Gould or Andras Schiff. Perahia's two volumes of the English Suites appeared in 1998 and '99, but his astonishing Goldberg Variations, released in 2000, was the true clarion call for those who linked the pianist primarily with Mozart and Chopin to sit up and take notice. Now we have been blessed with a pair of delightful discs featuring the seven keyboard concertos. This second volume the first came out in 2001 includes the 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th concertos, each of which is a re-tooled version of an earlier Bach concerto. The first and last may be more familiar to listeners as the violin concertos BWV 1042 and 1041 -- each transposed down a step here for their keyboard incarnations. The 5th is a hybrid, combining movements from concertos for violin and oboe. The 6th, though, will ring the most bells; it's an arrangement of the 4th Brandenburg Concerto -- again transposed down a step to F Major -- with the piano taking the solo violin role. Perahia's playing is as refined and stylish as ever; just listen to the slow movement of the 5th Concerto for a taste of his sublime sense of phrase. And the addition of an archlute in this movement -- a nod to historically minded performances -- enhances its enchantment. The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields accompanies with a generally light touch, matching Perahia's consummate pianistic grace. Strongly recommended.
Gramophone - Rob Cowan
Follow­up albums don’t always fulfil the promise of their predecessors, but this one certainly does. More than fulfils it, in fact.... The sound is beautifully clear...with impressive richness in the bass. Nothing much more to say except, don’t hesitate -- life is too short.
BBC Music Magazine - Jeremy Siepmann
Shout it from the rooftops (though it shouldn't be necessary): if Bach-playing comes any finer than this, it's in some other world.... If you buy only one CD this year, let it be this one.
International Record Review - Jed Distler
Sony's flawless, resplendent sound enhances a truly joyous and uplifting listening experience. Don't miss it!

Shout it from the rooftops (though it shouldn't be necessary): if Bach-playing comes any finer than this, it's in some other world.... If you buy only one CD this year, let it be this one.
