Bach Bartók Boulez


Michael Barenboim’s debut CD “Bach Bartok Boulez” has received very positive reviews in many different media.

The Strad: “His performances, flawlessly reproduced, are utterly persuasive and compelling”

Gramophone: “This is indisputably exciting playing across an indisputably effective programme”

The Guardian: “Both versions [Anthèmes 1 and 2] get high-voltage performances from Barenboim, and his accounts of Bartók’s immense and immensely difficult Sonata and the third of Bach’s solo sonatas that come between them have the same crackling intensity”

Die Welt: “Ein so strenges, wie klug kombiniertes, deshalb faszinierendes Hörabenteuer um drei große Bs”

MDR Figaro: “Beeindruckend am Ende, wie sich das heterogene Material im Nebeneinander zu einem neuen, sinnstiftenden Ganzen fügt”

Sunday Times: “Barenboim’s ripe-toned playing is as meticulous, spontaneous and concentrated as his lineage suggests.”
