Comments:Andrew Strebkov saida;

Ethereal, floating sound at times, emotive, with good dynamics (piano-forte). Great voicing - voices sound individualistically "opinionated" and converse with each other (just the way Bach would want it, I presume). I can listen to this rendition of the 4th Partita by Kahane, tirelessly, with each new listen "re"-discovering new treasure for the ear. I have not heard anyone else perform the three-part inventions with such mastery.
