Comments:Walter Riemer said:

Among far more than 300 recordings world-wide first recording using a fortepiano.

After Walter Riemer's "Art of the Fugue" CD (also played on a fortepiano) was published, several pianists addressed him as to what would be next after this highlight, all agreeing that only the "Goldberg variations" would be adquate.

The CD was produced all "in-house" and published under the new label NF-Audio. It can be obtained from the web shop http://shop.niederfellabrunn.at.
