Notes & Reviews:

"Schiff's Decca account, recorded at Kingsway Hall in 1982, has also become a boon companion to many people for its clarity, subtlety, good sense, and singing lines." -The Times of London

Gramophone
The playing is indeed exceptional ... the sound is splendid, with an ideal balance of warmth and clarity ... the performance offers more with, fantasy and sheer fun than any I've heard ...

BBC Music Magazine
This was the recording which persuaded George Malcolm that the two-keyboard Goldbergs were viable on the one-keyboard piano. Schiff spotlights detail in a way denied to the harpsichordist. Rewarding.
