WQXR (New York), August 2013

…Injushina plays the concertos on a modern piano with a historically informed approach. From pere Bach is the Concerto in E major BWV 1053, played with a fluid technique and light ornamentation. © WQXR (New York)

Fanfare, July 2013

Personally, I like Injushina and Gothóni’s approach to these works. Execution is alert and crisp, with slow movements beautifully shaped and caressed but not overindulged or sentimentalized. Recommended then to general listeners as a sampler of concertos by these three Bach family members… © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review

This release by Russian-Finnish pianist Anastasia Injushina and the Hamburger Camerata under Ralf Gothóni…has a fresh, bracing quality. The Keyboard Concerto in E major, BWV 1053, of Bach the father is very lightly and precisely done…There are plenty of Bach family recordings on both piano and harpsichord, but this one is a standout, with fine sound accomplished by Ondine… © 2013 Allmusic.com Read complete review

Audio Video Club of Atlanta, April 2013

Finnish pianist Anastasia Injushina gives us an intriguing program of works by three members of the Bach family who were instrumental in the birth of the modern piano concerto. In the process, her style, flair, and unfailing feeling for rhythms and textures guarantees our listening experience will be more than just a museum lecture in musical history, as she makes a lasting impression with her solid musicianship. Her rapport with Ralf Gothoni and the Hamburg Camerata is noticeable and immediate. © 2013 Audio Video Club of Atlanta Read complete review

Scene Magazine, March 2013

A concerto by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach JS’ fifth child opens the CD with a breathtakingly fluid cascade of unbroken notes, played without pause, finessed by the remarkable performance of pianist Anastasia Injushina. Another son of JS, Johann Christian, who embraced Italian musical traditions opera specifically composed the second piece on the recording, whilst JS himself wrote the third. An excellent tribute to the cultural impact of a family dynasty. © 2013 Scene Magazine Read complete review

…these brilliant keyboard concertos are a wonderful way to discover the musical talents of the lesser-known members of the Bach family, and enjoy a catchy tune or two along the way. © Classic FM Read complete review
