Piotr Anderszewski's Bach: Gramophone Recording of the Month

"Anderszewski draws you daringly into his own world," declares the latest review of the Polish pianist's English Suites.

The February issue of Gramophone has chosen Piotr Anderszewski's English Suites (Nos 1, 3 and 5) as Recording of the Month.

"This is a glorious disc. Simply glorious," Harriet Smith's review begins. She goes on to praise "readings that constantly impress with fresh details each time you hear them".

Under Anderszewski's fleet fingers, the suites "gain a sense of intrigue as he re-examines them from every angle, again bringing multifarious shadings to the music."

In the Polish pianist's long-awaited return to Bach, Gramophone declares, Anderszewski "harnesses the possibilities of the piano in the service of Bach; the result is a clear labour of love, and one in which he shines new light on old music to mesmerising effect."
