Notes & Reviews:

"There is much to like here, and this recording did grow on me. If I had an instrument like smith's, I'd certainly use it for Bach, and play it much the way he does."-American Record Guide

"Wanda Landowska's excellent essay on the Goldberg Variations serves as liner notes for this release...Hakkinen has clearly taken her words to heart. He uses every tool at his disposal to make Bach's meticulously calculated chiaroscuro apparent to the listener... Hakkinen never tries to improve on Bach's text, but he does let the listener know by his choices exactly what he finds elegant and special about Bach's music...He delivers the piece with wisdom and unself-concious exuberance. This superb release bears repeated listening."-American Record Guide

Reviews

Delightful
This recording is highly listenable with an air of long-time companions enjoying one anotherís company. The Trio Sonata particularly strikes me as an intimate conversation among close friends with distinct but superbly blended voices. Naturally, the flute is prominent but never overwhelms the other participants. Instead, all are welcomed into the exchange. The recording is very clean with a transparent sound and succeeds very well in creating space for each individual instrument to speak.
