(English version:) 'Performing famous Toccata and Fugue by Bach, Tchulovsky use the full tone, but not sharp, not with effect, when public feels that 'the ear-drums is cracked'. Playing rhapsodic passages he keeps the discipline of sounds and performs this piece not academically, but on Bach-suitable manner'. (German original): 'Tschulowski spielt berueckend klangvoll, ohne seinem begeisteren Publikum 'das Trommelfell ueber die Ohren zu ziechen'. Auch nicht bei der beruehmten Toccata mit Fuge, BWV 565, dessen rhapsodische Gewalt ihres Anfangs der Interpret in disziplinierter Hoerbarkeit hielt, als echtet Vorspiel zum dynamischen Vorwärtsschreiten der Fuge diese nicht akademisch, aber bachgerecht interpretierend'. --Dr Uta Ziegner. Thuringer Tageblatt, Germany
' That was a brilliant and very accessible to public performance; prelude and fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach sounded with majesty'. (from original in Dutch.) --R.Arbouw. Enkhuizer Courant, The Netherlands
Mit seiner interpretation zeigte Andrej Tschulowski seine grosse Meisterschaft --M.Dressel. Meininger Tageblatt, Germany
