Comments:Francisco Martinez said:

Susan Starr is a pianist that deserves to be more know and recorded. Here she playes a wonderful Bach recital,in a pianistic approach nearer Schiff, Argerich or Pogorelich than Gould. She takes her time and sings with the piano but, at the same time, has a strong rhytmic drive.
I reccomend this CD, perhaps not for purists, but you won`t be dissapointed.
