Reviews:

New York Times
This is Mr. Schiff’s second traversal of these works on disc; the first was a 1983 studio recording for Decca that was highly regarded in its day, and still is, but that sounds positively dumpy beside this vigorously played, beautifully recorded ECM version.

Mr. Schiff’s tempos are brisker and harder driven now, and the clarity of texture that has long been his hallmark is greatly magnified: his articulation could hardly be sharper, and his ability to sustain it through a performance of all six works in one sitting is extraordinary.

At times his seemingly endless well of energy can seem overbearing. Mr. Schiff’s careful balancing of Bach’s lines within fast-moving movements seems to have an intellectual severity that overrides the music’s visceral joys. And though the dance movements here were not meant to be danced, they should be taken at danceable tempos. A dancer trying to keep up with Mr. Schiff in, for example, the Gigue in the A minor Partita, would probably collapse, gasping, before the double bar.

But Mr. Schiff knows how to lighten up too. His minuets are consistently spirited and bright hued. And his subtly shaded accounts of the relaxed Praeludium of the B flat Partita, several of the sarabandes and the Tempo di Gavotta of the E minor Partita are pictures of elegance and transparency. Those are the qualities, along with Mr. Schiff’s fine-grained focus, that stay with you.


The Guardian
This is just marvellous. Over a quarter of a century since Schiff first taped these pieces for Decca, ECM (the Gramophone award-winning label of the year) has recorded him again in the ideal acoustic of the Neumarkt Reitstadel. Every note of the music is in Schiff's blood and, through his recent experience of conducting, he seems to have absorbed varied instrumental textures, breathtaking spontaneity, extrovert ornamentation, and whimsical rhythmic freedom. In an unusual order, starting with the cheerful Fifth Partita, the lyrical First, the imperious Second, and the exuberant Fourth lead to the infinite melancholy of the Sixth's opening fugue in E minor, over which the sun suddenly breaks as the music slips into G major: perfect.


Amazon.com editorial
These partitas are offered out of traditional sequence - V, III, I, II, IV and VI. Although there is no reason to think that Bach wrote the partitas to be performed together, this arrangement provides the most logical key progression (G - a minor - B flat - c minor - D - e minor). From his side of the footlights, Andràs Schiff also notes that in live performance the inner tranquility of the B-flat major partita (traditionally #1), is something that live audiences are seldom ready or settled-in to hear. As one would expect, you can't hear Schiff using any pedal, but the abstinence is much more pronounced than his earlier recording or most other prominent renditions. The effect is liberating. Free from lingering harmonics, this performance seems dedicated to the melodies within, as line and voice assume a clarity seldom heard. Recorded live in a 16th Century former armory in Neumarkt, Germany, there is an almost eerie lack of audience noise, although the placement of left and right hands in the stereo image is nigh on perfect. Schiff leads the listeners unflagging attention in an unbroken thread for hours. Masterly.
