Nick van Bloss releases recording of JS Bach Goldberg Variations

“Fresh, but cogent and entirely unselfconscious... Sublime poetry, playfulness and, above all, a relish of what the modern piano can bring to this music in terms of dynamics, colour and articulation.” Stephen Pettitt, The Sunday Times

“...precision is paramount, and Van Bloss employs it here to mesmerising effect...” Andy Gill, The Independent

“The fluidity of line, the unforced lyricism – not always thought an allowable word with Bach, but just listen to this – and the clarity of structure and counterpoint make you sit up.” Fiona Maddocks, The Observer
