Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Joshua Pierce is considered one of the most uniquely gifted virtuosos of our time. His on-going series of recordings on MSR Classics forms a testimony to the range of an artist who is known for his performances of 20th century repertoire as well as standard repertoire and rediscovered masterpieces of the past.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Here's a refreshing program, crisply and smartly played, that combines two somewhat off-the-beaten-path works with Bach's most substantial keyboard concerto. The interpretation is still nimble and expressive. The slow movement is particularly expressive, no doubt aided by Mr Pierce's sensitive playing and the greater nuance that can be deployed with the piano, as opposed to the harpsichord. There's plenty of vigor in III. It's a very refreshing performance overall of a work that should be better known. The sonics are very good.
