I have long been a fan of Windham Hill, but this is truly special. I also love mellow jazz and classical and this is a brilliant blending plus a couple of suprises into the mix. I really reccomend this work!

I have had this recording for years and I keep returning to it and never tire. About 2 years ago, I played this CD every night while getting my baby (now a toddler) ready for bed. I have hundreds of CDs and like most all kinds of music, but if I could only have one... it would Bach Variations. It is not too sleepy, not too technic, varied, perfect.

Thoughtful and well done variations of Bach standards. Artists are excellent, and recording quality is top shelf. Good stuff to relax with.

I have enjoyed many Windham Hills recordings over the years, but I think this one is my all-time favorite. It never fails to calm and relax me. The arrangements are different enough from each other to be interesting, but the CD as a whole hangs together beautifully. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I don't listen to this album as much as I thought I would when I first bought it. Don't get me wrong, it's a good album in the typical Windham Hill fashion. However, when I'm in the mood to listen to Bach (or any baroque music for that matter), I listen to the real thing. This CD has some good tracks on it, but is usually makes me put in the real thing.

This is just a great selection of classical Bach. Good easy listening. The variety of instrumentation makes the collection flow smoothly. I listen to the complete collection time and time again hearing something new and different each time.

Nice background music for when you're doing things that need a little concentration.

My brother and I have a little contest to find different versions of Bouree, and I'm a Nightnoise fan, so that's an added bonus.
