Entertaining, it certainly is, though not for more demanding sorts, to put it mildly. © 2016 The Buffalo News Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, April 2016

Pianist Zhu Xiao-Mei is unique among great pianists.

Her treating of the conversational polyphony and highlighting of the baseline are more reminiscent of Wanda Landowska’s 1933 harpsichord recording than of the great piano interpretations, from Gould to Tepfer. Zhu Xiao-Mei’s performance, captured by brilliant engineers in stunning acoustics, allows Landowska’s brand of clear vocal-like interplay to shine even more. © 2016 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Xiao-Mei…plays the vigorous variations appropriate to…her overall conception of this great work. A more suave and sophisticated performance would be hard to find.

The documentary is beautifully filmed and narrated… © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Zhu Xiao-Mei is an acclaimed interpreter of Bach’s work…the performance here is the living definition of sublime brilliance, and a powerful tribute to Bach’s enduring masterpiece. © 2014 Scene Magazine
