Kimiko Ishizaka, pianist


J.S. Bach, Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1, Kimiko Ishizaka, piano

☛ "she is a beautiful and technically accomplished player", "the light hand in interpretation makes this performance preferable to Hewitt (the later recording on Hyperion) or Schiff (ECM, Jan/Feb 2013)"
- American Record Guide, July-August 2015

☛ "Ishizaka plays the 24 preludes and fugues with impeccable taste and technique, finding many levels of musical meaning even as she brings utmost clarity to the multiplicity of textures.", "She scales her Bach to the rhythmic, structural and sonic needs of the music, without touching the sustaining pedal."
- Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone Magazine
