Notes & Reviews:

Rachel Podger has been recording and performing Bach's music for violin to critical acclaim for over two decades. In 2015 she became the tenth (and first female) recipient of the Royal Academy of Music Bach Prize. On this release she leads her own ensemble, Brecon Baroque, in Bach's monumental Art of Fugue. The recording is presented in Channel Classics's signature stunning SACD sound.

The Observer, 25th September 2016
With playing of this sophistication, the restricted sound palette works wonderfully, supporting a calm, ruminative exploration of the many fugal devices. Rachel Podger's group manages drama too in the French-style fugue, driven by the bite of the bow on the strings. The end is achingly incomplete, as is Bach's text.

Record Review, 28th October 2016
The counterpoint stays clear, you can really follow the lines, and...the character of the individual players becomes an integral part of the way you hear Bach's music. It never feels dull, academic of dry, and Podger and friends lively musical personalities bring a playfulness and curiosity to the performances that are very welcome.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
This is not an interpretation that wants to grab you by the lapels... but rather one which by its natural ebb and flow aims to draw you stealthily into the music and have you breathe with it, so that you don't notice the fugal climaxes coming until your own chest is swelling.

The Strad, November 2016
They revel in Bach's life-enhancing contrapuntal interplay and their relaxed, instinctive approach and ever-changing instrumentarium engender welcome contrasts within his ingenious conception. Particular highlights are the fugues scored for full ensemble, with Contrapuncti nos.7 and 9 the best of all.
