[ Decca Originals / 4 CD Box Set ]
Release Date: Tuesday 1 July 2008
"Schiff often takes a very individual view of particular preludes and fugues, but his unexpected readings regularly win one over long before the end. Consistently he translates this music into pianistic terms, and his voyage of discovery through this supreme keyboard collection is the more riveting as the piano is an easier instrument to listen to over long periods. First-rate sound." Penguin Guide
Schiff's many Bach recordings for Decca have won much critical praise and he has been one of the strongest advocates of playing Bach on the modern piano during the past twenty-five years and his recordings of Bach are regularly among top choices.
