Review by Fugue January 9, 2013 (6 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
I concur: this is a wonderful set. The main information that I want to add, which might further explain the sound difference, is that the Ravel is multi-channel and this Bach release is stereo. In my experience, m-ch always has more bloom, and often more presence, than stereo. Oh, how I wish Triton had maintained their m-ch releases.

Anyway, Abdel Rahman El Bacha plays with grace and poetry, or power and drama when required. He doesn't inflict as much utter individuality as some artists, but he doesn't sound like MIDI file, either. His phrasing and dynamics are very tasteful. This set contains lovely playing and quite fine audio.
