'Trevor Pinnock opens up unexpected new sound worlds in these orchestral arrangements of three of Bach's famous keyboard partitas.'
Apple Music album review
'Trevor Pinnock... presides over an elite string ensemble, joined by flute, oboe, cor anglais, and bassoon. He encourages all their modern colors while insisting on historically sensitive playing and articulation.'
Rondo Magazine album review
'Trevor Pinnock fires up the excellent soloists of the Royal Academy of Music to an immensely fresh, dance-like, lively performance that swings and grooves as if Bach, the originator, were still with us.'
The recording also reached number 18 on the Official Specialist Classical Chart, and is featured prominently in key classical music playlists across Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music.
Trevor Pinnock will be returning to the Academy on Friday 13 October to conduct the Academy Chamber Orchestra in Schubert's Symphony No 9 – book tickets here.
