Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Andrea Bacchetti's latest recording of Bach's great set of variations is one of the most wonderful things I have ever heard...Every single variation here is thought out afresh, but what is still more remarkable is the cumulative energy, so that by the time Bacchetti had reached the last four, I had an idiot grin of ecstasy, which refused to go away.

International Record Review
He is a clear and elegant pianist, with crisp, immaculate fingerwork that is certainly a prerequisite for the Goldberg Variation, as well as lovely legato and a tone that surrounds his distinct articulation with liquiescence...Bacchetti's playing is immensely likeable.

Fanfare
I have listened a lot to Andrea Bacchetti's Bach and I must say I find it easy to live with. The percussive attack of his Fazioli piano is only a step away freom the ping of the harpsichord, and in spite of the modern instrument Bacchetti's approach could be termed histrorically informed...Bacchetti gets on with things: hear how he flings himself into the first variation. It is vigorous and joyful, even a touch crude on certain bass notes (which I like).

Musical Opinion
This new release of this extraordinary masterpiece by the young Italian pianist Andrea Bacchetti is of high quality, both in terms of its musical understanding and technical mastery. The recording quality is also first-rate...Bacchetti is a very fine player indeed, with an excellent understanding of Bach and of the period...The little 'Anna Magdalena' pieces make a delightful bonus, and this CD can be warmly recommended.
