Notes & Reviews:

It has too often been overlooked that, between J.S. Bach's death and the triumphant revival of his St. Matthew Passion by Mendelssohn, other composers had already investigated the oeuvre of this "old master." Mozart was the most fervent among them. He once wrote to his father, "Every Sunday at twelve I go to Baron van Swieten's and nothing is played there except Handel and Bach. I'm currently making myself a collection of Bach fugues." On this release, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin perform Mozart's string arrangements of Adagio and Fugues from Bach's The Well-Tempered Clavier, bringing the work of two brilliant composers to life.

Early Music Today, Autumn 2014
The Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin are radiant in this recording ... this is glorious music beautifully played; a fascinating collection.
