 Daniel-Ben Pienaar piano
  3 September 2010  


Pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar opened the eyes and ears of the classical music world with his release of Mozart Piano Sonatas (AV 2209), earning plaudits such as Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice and CD of the Week from The Sunday Times. His recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations is destined to do the same. Pienaar’s probing intellectual interpretation combines with his dazzling finger work and perfect pianistic touch, to deliver a classic recording of Bach’s evergreen Goldbergs. As a bonus, he includes Fourteen Canons BWV 1087, based on the first eight bass notes of the Goldberg’s Aria, and Bist du bei mir from Bach’s Anna Magdalena Notebook, where the Aria from the Goldberg Variations first appeared.

"...His [Pienaar] Bach is superbly recorded in a bright attractive sound that doesn’t tire the ear. He includes some rubato in his playing that is expressive but never distracting..."

Colin Clarke - International Piano - January/February 2012


"...Avie’s recording is exceptionally  clear and natural; produced in the generally lively accoustic setting of the Royal Academ’s Dukes Hall, it’s never over-reverberant ... Pienaar’s booklet essay, incidentally, is absorbing and very well written. His wide-ranging philosophical and musical observations on bach interpretation add considerable value to this enterprising offering."

Michael Jameson - International Record Review - December 2011
