'A new kind of Bach sound which belongs to both piano and organ … [BWV14] is slow and thoughtful, yet is made serenely beautiful in Becker's glowing performance … fascinating, and I do recommend you to try this collection. It really is rewarding' (Gramophone)

'Markus Becker is a heroic exponent of this obscure yet satisfying repertoire … the core of the two discs is Reger's series of Chorale Prelude transcriptions, in which … he finds a profound and plangent expressiveness … a fascinating addition to Hyperion's series of Bach transcriptions' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Marvelous, both Reger and Becker balancing the intimate moments with the public ones' (Fanfare, USA)
