Notes & Reviews:
American Record Guide, March / April 2013
I would say his present interpretations strike me as on a similar emotional wavelength to Martens, with a good deal of humor and involvement with the implications of Bach's notes as seen 200 years after they were written. Wispelwey is more early-music conscious in his bow-strokes than Martens; the results are just as lively and amusing. He has fingers of notable accuracy and an imaginative sense of phrasing.
