by Vladimir Ashkenazy
 
Mr. Ashkenazy brings these arrangements to life with all the zest they deserve but also with a sense that they are worthy of attention, not frivolous throwaways. There are real gems here.

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - Bryce Morrison
The final gigue from the Bach Suite fizzles with energy. And even when [Ashkenazy] lacks, say, Moiseiwitsch's mercurial grace and charm in Lilacs or in the Mendelssohn Scherzo, his lightly pedalled accounts allow every quasi-polyphonic and canonic strand to be heard with diamond-like brilliance and clarity.
