"Triumphant Breakthrough!
Unlike the violin literature of Bach, the flute works have a more linear/horizontal approach/progression. The use of two guitar transcription is an ingenious manner to point out the linear harmonies of these works. Piccinini in pristine form supported by the subtlety of the Brasil Guitar Duo has triumphed in these breakthrough performances of Bach's endearing works. We are hearing them as though for the first time, cleansed from the often cumbersome mechanism of the harpsichord and giving us the music within. The entire project is inspired and to be applauded." -Asadour Santourian
