The ease with which the young pianist Schaghajegh Nosrati plays Bach has impressed great musicians like Sir András Schiff and Robert Levin. They describe her performance as convincing and as exceptionally moving. Now we too, thanks to Nosrati's debut GENUIN CD, can be witnesses of her exceptionally mature art of interpretation. That the pianist chose Bach's opus ultimum, The Art of Fugue, fits into the picture: the seemingly bulky work comes forth with ease and naturalness, turning into a great narrative in her hands that we listen to with joy and astonishment.

Music Web International
"Beautifully recorded in a fine but non-churchy acoustic, this is an impressive and musically satisfying BWV 1080 in every way."
Review on Music Web International by Dominy Clements, September 2015

"una strumentista che ha cominciato prestissimo ad avvincinarsi all´immenso capolavoro (...) notevole livello della registrazione, timbricamente chiara e naturale"
Review on the Italian magazine Musica by Claudio Bolzan (December 2015-January 2016), five stars (highest rating)

American Record Guide
"captivating performance (...) Clarity of voices, creative and interesting phrasing, and a full variety of pianistic touches characterize this interpretation."
Review on the American Record Guide by Harrington, January/February 2016

"a glimpse into a future talent that will manifest itself in many ways as her discography expands. For her first effort, this recording shows a nicely sensitive and musical approach to an iconic work that portends greater things yet to come."
