Notes & Reviews:

The wonderful keyboard music of J S Bach is very special for acclaimed German pianist Burkard Schliessmann who gives a notable, expressive interpretation. This is a 5 channel surround sound SACD but fully compatible with CD players. Luxury digipak presentation with notes in English, French and German. "... Schliessmann's playing is representative of the best of the modern school ..." Harold C. Schonberg (former chief music critic of The New York Times)

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Schliessmann's new release collects a number of works often recorded by pianists along with the Fantasia and Fugue in A minor (S 904) and an interesting three-movement complex made from the C-minor Fantasy and Fugue (S 906) and the Adagio in G (S 968). His tone is lovely and singing; his phrasing imaginative and probing. At his best - in the fast movements of the Italian Concerto and the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue - he has no rivals.
