By A Customer on 28 Sept. 2005
Format: Audio CD
This recording will stand well against Glenn Gould's, and Ricther's, it is powerful and well played. An wonderful antidote against the frenetic life that we all have. A MUST for Bach officinados and an experience of peaceful contemplation at the end of the day.

Am I alone in thinking this recording was made inside a drum?: it booms and reverberates to the point where the music is (almost) destroyed. If you want to hear the notes (all of them, undistorted) try Andras Schiff or even better (if that were possible) Tatiana Nikolayeva

5.0 out of 5 stars most interesting interpretation since Gould 16 Feb. 2007
By Marie Furtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I cannot beleive what reviewers are saying about this most accomplished of performers. People who have no taste, no knowledge and no practice of classical music should just stick around their pop tunes and abstain to write about Barenboim. This pianist brings his long, varied and acclaimed career as a director and a pianist to a climax with this playing of Bach. Gould was great but there was still something mechanical in his performance. Now we have each prelude and fugue set in its texture, its color, its appropriate rythm and atmosphere. It is all done with gusto, unparalleled knowledge of the last 500 years of music and extreme delicacy. After Fisher, Richter, Gould, Schiff and everybody else, this is a turning point.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bombastic Bach 3 Oct. 2005
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I could barely force myself to listen to the whole set because Barenboim's touch is harsh and overbearing, he pedals too much and much passage work is muddy, and his approach is willful and anachronistic. I don't mind pianistic, even quasi-Romantic Bach (admiration for Edwin Fischer and Sviatoslav Richter comes to mind) but this is as if he were playing on the piano analog of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Scary. And it takes three CDs, for goodness sake! Unless you're a huge fan of Barenboim in his piano-playing incarnation, avoid this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not very exciting. 14 July 2006
By A. Jun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Barenboim's playing is probably not as horrible as the first reviewer suggests. However, Mr. Barenboim's interpretation just sounds directionless and lacking drama to my ears. Listening to these discs feels like one disappointment after another. I must agree that these disc should be avoided.
