The Best New Bach,
This review is from: Vol. 1 Bach: English Suites (Audio CD)
This CD seems listed twice here on Amazon UK. I have written my review on the other listing, but briefly here is my impression: This is the most exciting recording of the English Suites since I first heard those of Gould when I was 10 years old. Of course, I am not forgetting the wonderful Perahia, but Stadtfeld's Bach is very new. The rhythmic tightness is impressive, vibrant. His touch is certainly cantabile, and his Bach playing speaks volumes unfolding Bach's intricate writing in an effortless way. I do hope in time to hear many many more recordings by this extraordinary German Pianist. I feel Bach himself would be applauding loudly at this stage!

However good this is, how do they justify charging twice the usual proce for a single CD?

You make a good point. The price is not ideal, but the playing is really out of this world... and very tight pure no-nonsense bach playing (I disagree with the post that claims too many liberties are taken...)
I would try Amazon.de (German Amazon) or waiting to see if it comes down in price.
