I find this recording very, very boring. It is uninspired and just...below average. I don't recommend it.

This is the brightest, clearest and most cheerful sounding recording of Bach's Trio Sonatas BWV525-530 that I have heard. There are occasional slight lapses in tempo but not enough to be intrusive. I think the microphone/s must have been placed quite close to the wonderful sounding organ so this complex music is not muddled by too much reverberation.

Extremely musical interpretation with superior articulation. Gives life to these subtle but vibrant works. A joy to listen to!
