Better off WITH it. 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is some of the most beautiful music of Bach I have ever heard. The main reason being because I just love the way Itzhak Perlman plays Bach because he plays it romantically and I completely and utterly despise baroque instruments and performance. This combination of the best violinist ever and the best soprano ever is just superb. This IS a very beautiful recording and I can recommend it fully.

Wonderful, Heartfelt 13 Jan 2003
By Christopher A. Lanter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is a serious candidate for Battle's best - her voice is flawless and at its most expressive (which is saying a lot, considering how gorgeous her voice ALWAYS is), the recording quality itself is warm and intimate, and Mr. Perlman's playing forms an exquisitely tender accompaniment to Battle's singing. I find myself returning again and again to this recording - it will always hold a treasured spot in my collection. Highly recommended.

Soaringly Beautiful Bach 24 Nov 1999
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the finest renditions of Bach arias I have heard and was my introduction to the perfect soprano voice of Kathleen Battle. Perlman's violin blends and entwines with Battle's voice to produce soaring and perfectly balanced music that is inspiring and uplifting. Not a disappointing moment in the whole recording.
I would recommend this album to anyone who is venturing for the first time into the realm of opera and particularly soprano voices. This is music straight from the soul that any serious classical music lover will immediately connect with.

Miss Battle is Superb 27 April 2000
By tiphanie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am not the kind of individual who ordinarily listens to Opera. However, I have been taking voice lessons this past semester, and my teacher required me to listen to Kathleen Battle. The way in which Perlman and Battle compliment one another is simply divine. It was love at first sight! This CD transcends my former resistence to opera and has opened a whole new world for me.

A Soothing And Unique Collection of Bach's Music 28 Dec 2003
By Timothy Kearney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THE BACH ALBUM is a beautiful and relaxing collection of Bach arias. Most of the pieces included in the collection are not instantly recognized by the average listener (I include myself in this category) which makes the collection unique and in my opinion gives the collection more of an appeal. I often use it as background music when I am trying to complete a project or wish to create a relaxing atmosphere. Listeners expect great musicianship from both Kathleen Battle and Itzhak Perlman and both deliver exceptional performances. Both compliment each other and neither seems to be competing for attention. The Orchestra of St. Luke's, under the direction of John Nelson supports the two principal musicians well. This album is a must for Bach lovers and anyone else who appreciates the musicianship of these two extraordinary talents.
