Notes & Reviews:

The latest release (Vol. 2) of Andreas Bach's recording of the complete piano works of Béla Bartók focuses on Bartók's romantic roots; early period pieces based largely on the German Romantic tradition. Andreas Bach has quickly established himself as a masterful interpreter of Bartók's music, garnering enthusiastic reviews praising the edition's success: "Of all the recordings... of these furious, earth-shattering, primitive works known to me, only Philips recording with Zoltán Kocsis offers these fantastic keyboard scenes with comparable nuance, and sense of drama." (Klassik Heute)
