The first ever collection of Murray Perahia's Complete Bach Recordings for Sony Classical. The x8 original albums, recorded 1997 to 2009. Includes the famous Goldberg Variations (Gramophone Award) and English Suites 1, 3 & 6 (Grammy® Award), as well as the complete Partitas and solo keyboard concertos.

"No mannerisms, no distractions, no self-serving virtuosity - just the most lucid and moving recording yet of this work." (Gramophone, 2001 GRAMOPHONE AWARD WINNER - Instrumental for Goldbergs)

"uniquely revealing, essentially thoughtful and intimate, often introvert, and with his involvement and dedication present in every bar. The piano recording, too, is wonderfully natural." (Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music, 2011 for Goldbergs)

"Bach keyboard playing doesn't come any finer than this. A set of true distinction, most truthfully recorded." Penguin Guide, on Partitas

"The ASMF is Perahia's partner for these acclaimed 2000 and 2001 discs which, apart from a variety of keyboard colour and nuance that puts rival versions in the shade, benefit from an ideal recorded balance." Gramophone on Keyboard Concertos
