Album Summary

Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

When recording Bach's Goldberg Variations, Anastasia Voltchok was keen to play right through the work only twice on one and the same day, the advantages of avoiding short takes self-evident. She prefers avoiding long pauses between variation groups, though feels it advisable to take time before starting the work's second half. She believes it vital to have studied as many of Bach's works as possible. Ms. Voltchok, who studied with, among others, Rudolf Buchbinder in Basel and Santiago Rodriguez in Maryland, prefers to allow herself to be guided by the spirit of the moment.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Voltchok impresses me with her clarity of voices and their dynamic gradations. It is more like an excellent harpsichord performance. Some moments are too carefully played for accuracy's sake. The German label Solo Musica has excellent piano sound, attractive packaging, and a well-translated essay.
