Kaplan is at the top of his form. His sophisticated insights and subtle mastery deserve serious consideration.” -

I’m not going to suggest that this is the only recording of the Bach solo sonatas and partitas you should own, but for me, it’s definitely one of the top ten.” - Finding Beauty in Ephemera

This 2-CD album is a real keeper.” - Performing Arts Monterey Bay

As if conjuring a whole atmosphere of Bach, the sound is full and sumptuous with a balanced ambience throughout Kaplan’s superb interpretation.” - STRINGS
