Comments:Krzysztof Lorentz said:

Very personal, expressive interpretation by a Brazilian artist recording the complete keyboard works of Bach. Martins' extraordinary technique and contrapuntal precision together with deep feelings makes this recording one of my favourites. Not for beginners, but highly recommended to listeners who like to compare various recordings.
