Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents an unusual interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach's sonatas for viola da gamba and harpsichord. Yuri Medianik, a versatile talent (he plays the bayan and violin, conducts and arranges), made a rendition of Bach's sonatas for cello and ... bayan. The cello part is performed by Boris Andrianov, one of the best cellists of the new generation, a brilliant representative of Natalia Shakhovskaya's school and prize-winner of the International Rostropovich Cello Competition in Paris and the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Yuri Medianik's arrangement has drawn attention of a number of instrumentalists, but is released for the first time. This new interpretation of Bach's sonatas performed by the top class soloists will indeed be a decoration to any music collection for sophisticated professionals and a broad circle of music lovers alike.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Hello, Johann. Welcome to 2016! We have three new recordings of your lovely viola da gamba sonatas for your delectation. We are playing the notes you wrote and the sound is pure, without vibrato. I like the concept of all the voices being played on melodic instruments. These are sensitive interpretations with lots of life and amusement. It is enjoyable. There's an encore, a movement from your C-minor Violin Sonata. I'm keeping this one on my shelves for variety and nice playing.
