Bach as light music, not for me,
This review is from: Bach : Fantasia Inventions, Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue (Audio CD)
Refinement and elegance of her playing is pretty impressive at first hearing, but this is not the kind of performance I want to come back repeatedly. It's matter of personal taste, but for me Bach should be played with much depth and sense of awe. Maybe I'm too old fashioned, but whatever she plays sounds like light music and as if something is missing despite all the praises heaped upon her by critics and listeners alike.

Maybe what you like is Bach played with a heavy addition of late romantic syrup. Bach's music should be played as though we might enjoy ourselves while listening - Bach did!
