Notes & Reviews:

Praised by the Washington Post as "a musician in service to [Bach's] music, searching its depths, exploring its meaning and probing its possibilities", Rafal Blechacz, winner of the 2005 International Chopin Piano Competition, releases his first album for DG devoted to Bach. The album includes the Partitas nos. 1 & 3, Italian Concerto, Fantasia and Fugue in A minor, and more. Blechacz returns to the US in March and April for recitals.
