Volume 1 N15946. BBC Music Magazine. ‘Another Goldbergs, yes, but this is measured yet magisterial playing – Richard Lester lets the playing do the talking to great effect.’ BBC Music Magazine (OC) ****
‘This recording, dedicated by Richard Lester to his teacher George Malcolm (1917-1997), makes a fine marker for such an anniversary… stands at the vanguard of something that will stand proudly alongside other such huge projects by Richard Lester, including the entire Scarlatti sonatas, Frescobaldi and numerous others. Lester’s numerous followers will need little persuading to acquire this Bach programme, and they will surely not be disappointed.’ Musicweb International. Dominy Clements
