Donald Satz wrote (July 4, 2002):
This will be a short review, and I refer readers to my previous review of "Bach and the French Influence" also performed by Kimberly Marshall.

Concerning the "French" disc, I strongly recommended the recording for its excellent programming, glowing and lively performances, and the versatile Fisk Organ. However, my enthusiasm for the "Italian" disc is of a lower magnitude primarily because of the programming.

The Frescobaldi works only take up about ten minutes of playing time, so the bulk of the disc's value rests with the six Bach compositions. Except for the two larger works(Toccatas & Fugues), the Bach offerings are not among his more inspired organ works. Further, although a Wolfgang Rubsam or Andrea Marcon can make these lesser works into something more enriching, Ms. Marshall provides no similar magic.

Don's Conclusions: I recommend passing on the "Italian" recording and going for the "French" disc which should represent a fine addition to one's library of organ recordings.
