Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar opened the eyes and ears of the classical music world with his release of Mozart's complete Piano Sonatas, earning plaudits such as the Gramophone Editor's Choice Award and CD of the Week from The Sunday Times. His recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations is destined to do the same. Pienaar's probing intellectual interpretation combines with his dazzling finger work and perfect pianistic touch to deliver a classic recording of Bach's evergreen Goldbergs. As a bonus, he includes Fourteen Canons BWV 1087, based on the first eight bass notes of the Goldberg's Aria, and Bist du bei mir from Bach's Anna Magdalena Notebook, where the Aria from the Goldberg Variation first appeared.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2012
By avoiding repeats and opting for fleet tempi, Pienaar produces a breathless, highly energised reading, and has room at the end of the cycle to include the 14 Canons on the bass of the Goldberg aria...These extras elicit some of Pienaar's finest playing, and it's disconcerting but in the end satisfying to hear the canons, discovered in 1974, added to the cycle as if they constitute a final, deconstructive commentary.
