This is a very good record, particularly worthy of note is Kawalla's rendition of the Goldberg Variations. She does an outstanding job of capturing the spirit of the piece (originally written for harpsichord) on piano. Very beautiful! BWV903 and 904 did not catch my heart to the same extent as the Variations did, but are still well presented.
