Comments:Though not Rosalyn Tureck or Glenn Gould, Nikolayeva too has a very distinct style. Her mastery of the polyphonic structure, dynamics and rhythm is almost unequaled. This recording also combines several seldomly performed Bach keyboard pieces, and is an invaluable addition to a Bach collection.
