Notes & Reviews:

Twenty-one years old when this recording was made, Rémi Geniet offers us a fascinating portrait of Bach on the piano. From the virtuosity of the early works like the Toccata to the supreme mastery of the dance suites (Partitas and English Suites), the drama and brio of Bach's keyboard music can vie with that of operas or concertos.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Remi Geniet won the International Telekom Beethoven Competition (the youngest pianist to do so) and took second prize in the Queen Elisabeth at the age of 20. He made this recording at the age of 21. His playing is tasteful and expressive. He varies the repeats with confidence. He has boundless technique, making the Gigue from Partita 4 sound almost absurdly easy.
