'This impressively comprehensive study of all CPE Bach’s work for keyboard and violin [...] is intelligently and elegantly conveyed by the distinguished Amsterdam-based players Rie Kimura, violin, and Pieter-Jan Belder, keyboards. Recommended.'
The Observer

'The dazzling duo partnership of violinist Rie Kimura and keyboard player Pieter-Jan Belder delivers rich dividends on all musical fronts, their pooled technique truly formidable, while their mastery of CPE Bach’s sound-world (which in this instance was originated over a long period) is evidently the result of careful study.'
Classical Ear (5 stars)

'[...] Pieter-Jan Belder's sparkling accounts. [...] Violinist RIe Kimura's playing is supple and stylish [...] throughout, their response to the younger Bach's rhetoric is keenly felt'
BBC Music Magazine

'Kimura coaxes a lyrical flexibility from her violin, its sonorous tone enhanced by her restrained but telling vibrato usage, notably in the Adagio of the C minor Sonata. [...] Belder, too, plays with a spontaneity and sense of timing that allow the music to breathe, and he negotiates the juxtaposition of figured bass and fully notated episodes in, for example, the Sonata in B minor with a degree of smooth efficiency.'
The Strad

'[...] there is enough variation to keep one listening throughout, and the quality of the playing is never in doubt'
