Wild, impetuous, rocking, fantastic – in short, Johann Sebastian Bach. That's how one could summarise Stepan Simonian's GENUIN Debut CD. All seven Bach Toccatas for piano are on it, works that have led a wallflower existence on the record shelves compared to other keyboard works of this great master. Are they not written skilfully enough? Not sufficiently developed? When one listens closely to the virtuoso playing of the 2010 Bach Prize winner, these commentaries dissolve into thin air. The music flashes and sparkles, large arches are formed and polished details are presented to the delighted listener… Groove factor: very high!

American Record Guide
"...this release strikes me as one of the more exciting accounts of Bach’s toccatas on piano."
