Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Fanfare
He does not let the virtuosity or free-flowing passages become an excuse for idiosyncratic personal touches, but retains a level of poise and control throughout...Bacchetti achieves the best of all possible worlds in this approach...This disc is strongly recommended.

Gramophone Magazine
When Bach indicates no tempo, Bacchetti tends to unfold the music at a leisurely pace, sustaining attention through his carefully organised dynamic designs and keen harmonic awareness...The recorded sound is robust and full-bodied.

International Piano
His lucid elegance is again to the fore, often to telling effect.

MusicWeb International
With Bacchetti I have the feeling that his thinking and intention is governed very strongly by the mechanics and design of each movement, and its place within each Toccata...to my mind this is a recording which delivers more the more you hear it, and when this is true you know it's Bach talking.

Reviews

Bacchetti continues to impress with distinctive Bach interpretations
A very lyrical reading of the Bach Toccatas. Shades of Glenn Gould in the adagios. Read the full review at: http://www.classical-cd-reviews.com/2010/06/bach-toccatas-andrea-bacchetti.html
