Notes & Reviews:

"Charles Timbrell's notes observe that they initiate a new stage in the history of Bach transcription. Whereas previous arrangers concentrated on JSB's instrumental works, Rummel's are almost all of choruses and arias from the cantatas, whose textural complexity required him to condense as many as eight simultaneous lines under the hands....Amazing too is Jonathan Plowright's ability to project these pieces while keeping every voice and nuance in balance." -BBC Music Magazine

'Time and again you are reminded of real technique as opposed to a more familiar, glib and colourless alternative, and it is surely no exaggeration to say that if such playing is anything to go by you are listening to one of the finest living pianists; the possessor of qualities that should no longer remain a secret. Hyperion's sound is of demonstration quality, a crowning touch to musical and pianistic greatness. These are treasurable records' (Gramophone)

'This is a major addition to the catalogue and one of the finest piano recordings of recent years' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The English pianist Jonathan Plowright performs all of these pieces to perfection: his technical gifts shine in the complex textures... but he can handle simple and poetic works [just fine too]' (American Record Guide)

'Rummel's background was cosmopolitan. He died in 1953 in his late sixties, and left a few recordings but nothing that I've heard even begins to compare with the rapt and refined playing of Jonathan Plowright on these remarkable CDs' (The Independent)

'Amazing too is Jonathan Plowright's ability to project these pieces while keeping every voice and nuance in balance. Performances of rare identification and understanding make this a very special release in Hyperion's Bach Piano Transcriptions series' (BBC Music Magazine)

'As Charles Timbrell outlines in his excellent liner notes, Rummel went to great pains to weave the complexity of musical lines into one organic whole, and Plowright is alive to every nuance and detail. Plowright and Hyperion have done an excellent job in putting Rummel back on the musical map' (Pianist)

'I really can't imagine Rummel's particular vision of this music being more vibrantly brought to life' (International Record Review)

'For all their stylish anachronisms, the transcriptions undoubtedly illuminate the music's inherent beauty and spiritual aura. So does Jonathan Plowright's beautiful tone and unruffled technique. This is masterly, transcendent piano playing on every level...one of the loveliest piano releases of 2006' (Classics Today)

'Those who enjoy transcriptions for their aesthetic clashes should find these generally unfamiliar works a delightful acquaintance. Jonathan Plowright plays splendidly. Fine sound too. Warmly welcomed' (Fanfare, USA)

'The English pianist Jonathan Plowright performs all of these pieces to perfection' (American Record Guide)

Gramophone Magazine
How richly satisfying to hear playing of such unimpeachable musical honesty and awe-inspiring pianist grandeur... It is surely no exaggeration to say that if such playing is anything to go by you are listening to one of the finest living pianists; the possessor of qualities that should no longer remain a secret. Hyperion's sound is of demonstration quality, a crowning touch to musical and pianistic greatness. These are treasurable records
