5.0 out of 5 stars Good but I want more, 7 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Binoculars and People (Paperback)
The problem with this book is that it was good. I enjoyed it... but when I finished reading all the stories I wanted more. Also, more contemporary Bins would be nice.

Perahia is very very very good at Bach. Lovely easy listening... a joy... great bass and lush piano sound. The warm touch comes to Bach.

No no no... it's a book on violins so I have it. In fact I love Gurneri violins... I play on a Guarneri copy. but could I do without this book ? Yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obviously good, 7 Nov 2009
Of course this is a good book. There are pictures by Cotman in it. So that's enough to make it above anything I can write here. The text is readable too. I love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars A big book, 7 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yuk. This might be a great book, but there is too much text and no glossy pictures. I bet the info in it is good... I wouldn't really know... but this brick book will not get read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Of course it's good, 7 Nov 2009
No one can play Bach with the energy of Gould. No need to review this... it's not up for discussion. This is too good to criticise. Get it and listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars If only, 7 Nov 2009
Hmmm. I like this young lady playing Romantic Concertos... not so keen on her Bach... if only it were a little purer and more linear... oh well... can't say it's bad.

It's Orpheus best in the world chamber orchestra again. Can this be played better ? hardly. It's brilliant.
