Critical acclaim for Nicholas Kraemer’s Bach with the Chicago Symphony: “Kraemer … is as comfortable playing Baroque repertory with symphony orchestras as with period-instrument groups. He had no trouble transferring his ideas about balance, scale, articulation and phrasing … Kraemer made adherence to matters of period style a means to an end rather than the end in itself. The end was vigorous and polished Bach playing. ” John von Rhein – Chicago Tribune
