Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012
It's over a quarter of a century since Dmitry Sitkovetsky made his string trio transcription of the Goldbergs, recorded here with Romantic gusto alongside the Sinfonias.

MusicWeb International, November 2012
This is not "Bach For Relaxation", but a high-octane energy booster...It all starts from the Aria: vibrant, full-voiced, very expressive yet with a certain "white" delicacy. The variations follow without pauses, which creates a forward-rolling feeling of agitation and delight...the recording quality is excellent; the string lines appear like bright electric threads over black velvet.
