PERFORMANCE

'This is very much the thinking man or woman's Bach' (Early Music Review)» More

‘[Tunnicliffe] illuminates these masterpieces with [a] kind of lightly worn elegance and refreshing sobriety … highly recommended’ (International Record Review)» More

'Tunnicliffe's sound is generous and finely grained, the faster dances sharply pointed, the sarabandes dark pools of metreless beauty' (The Independent on Sunday)» More

'These are weighty interpretations with a broad harmonic sweep' (The Strad)
