Bach Romantic? What comes to mind is something almost syrupy, or interpretations which come across as calorie-loaded cream puffs... Violinist Mayumi Hirasaki and pianist Christine Schornsheim have a completely different perception of what Romantic means. Their new Genuin classics release features Bach arrangements by, among others, Felix Mendelssohn, Ferdinand David and Robert Schumann: tender, diaphanous music which is suggestive of the bright expanse of the Romantic era. The two musicians, well known in the Early Music scene, put their heart and soul into playing compelling repertoire from outside the mainstream. The highpoint and central pillar of the CD: the famous Chaconne by Bach in three different arrangements.

"Regardless of their original context, these arrangements are appealing in their own right, as masterfully demonstrated by Japanese violinist Mayumi Hirasaki and pianist Christine Schornsheim." CD-tip, MDR-Figaro

"Fine playing which forces you to take these accompanied versions seriously. I ended up enjoying and admiring it hugely."
