Comments:Mei-Ting Sun said:

The recording of the Goldberg Variations by Edward Aldwell is deeply moving, yet textually extremely clear.

"The pianist Edward Aldwell plays Bach as if in the midst of a meticulously structured reverie, combining Romantic abandon with Linear clarity"

-Tim Page, The New York Times
