''eveyrthing here is worth sampling at least once, and most of it more often than that. It's a real treat and the sound is excellent. Need I say more?'
Gramophone 'Editor's Choice' (October 2004)

'It's a wonderful listen and a worthy follow-up to Slatkin's earlier five-star CD of orchestrations by various composers (CHAN 9835)'
The Independent

'Le choix de l'audiophile' 'Le choix de l'audiophile'
Classica (France)

''this rewarding anthology receives an opulent and lucid recording. An enlightening project then, and a testimony to Bach's indestructible music and his ability to inspire.'
