"Germany's finest classical guitarist and one of the world's top players, Hubert Kappel... effortlessly renders Bach's sixth Keyboard Partita with great musicality, breathing life into it at every phase. Extremely well recorded, 'Virtuoso Transcriptions' sets a high standard for contrapuntal clarity and musicality." by Jim Ferguson, Guitar Player Magazine

"Only an artist with a perfect technique can even dream of tackling such a difficult and demanding work, one which even accomplished pianists avoid." by Frankfurter Allgemeine

"I doubt that there are many guitarists who could even handle the mechanics of BWV 830, let alone present the product as worthwhile music - which is what Kappel does... This is surely one of the most magnificent discs of guitar music to appear for many years." by John Duarte, Guitar International Magazine

"In my opinion, there are only two other recordings in the history of guitar recordings which fall into the same category with Hubert Kapppel's: Segovia's 'Chaconne' of 1948 and Granados/Albeniz of Barrueco... it ranks among the very best." by Georg Metsch, Nova Giulianad, Freiburg

"Kappel's Bach is both a technical milestone and an undeniable artistic achievement. Here is one history performance which has not been allowed to get away." by Classical Guitar Magazine

"...consign this CD to the masterpiece shelf. This is one of the most powerful classical guitar discs I've ever heard. Kappel is no doubt from another planet." by The Retriever
