Bach: Golgberg Variations

'This arrangement has been recorded several times … but the Leopold's belated entry into the field eclipses all others … the hushed withdrawing of the Aria's ultimate reprise is spellbinding … For listeners, there are times when holding one's breath is inescapable' --BBC Music Magazine

'This is a triumphantly convincing account of the Goldberg Variations from the Leopold Trio, whose ability to draw the listener into the music never falters throughout this beautifully engineered recording … Highly recommended' --International Record Review

'As I did before starting on the journey, you may wonder if the Goldberg Variations played by a string trio could ever be as good as the best of piano or harpsichord versions. After having heard this recording in depth and while still hypnotised by its spell, I’m beginning to wonder if I ever want to hear it any other way' --MusicWeb International

'The Leopold String Trio does the work full justice. Hugely enjoyable playing' --Scotland on Sunday
