A good technical recording, but it might not please those listeners who are committed to the Bach variations. In my view it improves with familiarity. Certainly it was more agreable on the third and subsequent playing. However there is always a risk that if a recording fails to appeal on it's debut it may not be played again. I doubt that it will achieve the popularity of the earler Loussier recordings.
This has to be the worst CD from this otherwise marvellous pianist. Maybe I'm getting old, or I'm too familiar with Play Bach, but I am a pianist, and I don't like this, or his original composition...not one little bit.
