Comments:Simon Crouch said:

Those of you who enjoy hearing Bach's keyboard works played on the piano and particularly those of you who enjoy Andras Schiff's recordings of the solo keyboard concerti will be glad to hear that he has teamed up with Peter Serkin and Bruno Camino to record the double and triple keyboard concerti (BWV 1060-1064). Schiff is also joined by Aurele Nicolet (flute) and Yuuko Shiokawa (violin) in the triple concerto BWV 1044. This is a Decca CD with catalogue number 455 761-2 and has just appeared in the UK and is a worthy partner to Schiff's solo concerti recording.

An important addition to the catalog of recordings of J.S. Bach's keyboard concerti. Schiff plays with his usual vibrant clarity and unsurpassed sensitivity to phrasing and the articulation of the counterpoint. He is, by far, my favourite pianist for Bach. This recording nicely complements his earlier recording of the solo keyboard concerti. His teaming up with Peter Serkin and Bruno Camino for these multiple-keyboard concerti is a perfect match. The performance is unified and energetic; it's Bach at his most elegant! Highly recommended.
