“Ohnishi’s brilliant artistry immerses the listener in the creative and emotional narratives Bach unfolds with incomparable mastery.” - Gramophone

“Ms. Ohnishi is a one-woman orchestra behind those keys.” - ICON

“Ohnishi meticulously preserves the nuance of the variations; an ineffable quality many scholars attribute to Bach’s expansive, yet logically ordered musical imagination. Consequently, listeners are likely to become more aware of the multidimensional nature of the variations, and appreciate Ohnishi’s interpretation that much more.” - SCENE
