“Zucker’s interpretations are splendid all round -as polished and gratifying as those by Galway and Rampal. Her tone is airy and sweet, her virtuosity graceful. One might describe her style as old-fashioned, since it seems more concerned with sculpting phrases and nurturing Bach’s expansive melodies…

Perhaps the most endearing quality of Zucker’s playing is its naturalness. Her account of the well – known Siciliana of the Sonata in E flat is blessedly unencumbered by any expressive emphases, and is all the more touching as a result. Harpsichordist, Gerald Ranck is a worthy partner, playing in a similarly plainspoken manner.

If the quality of these interpretations is any indication, then Zucker’s students at California State University, Sacramento – whom she graciously credits in the CD booklet- are in very good hands indeed.”

“The performance is delightful, stylistically accurate for the period, and tasteful in all respects. The program notes are informative as to the authenticity issues that surround several of the Bach sonatas.”
