Ilya Oblomov
Fanfare, November 2009

This recent recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations (BWV 988) is played on a modern (2005) pipe organ by highly skilled organist Gunther Rost… This is something to savor time and again. …this recording introduces elements to the music that neither the harpsichord nor the piano can touch: the power and grandeur of an organ at full cry, and the eerie (some say mystical) quality of the organ at ppp.

…the organ brings out some new dynamics in the music, which might better define the soul of J. S. Bach. Enthusiastically recommended. © 2009 Fanfare Read complete review
