"To recognize how lively and exciting this sort of improvisation-like keyboard playing can be. With relish, Fetz lets the arpeggios ripple through the fingers, enjoying to the full a tone here, lingering on a figure there. Then he rushes in garlands of glittering passages over the keyboard. In spite of all of this, he never for a moment loses sight of the long arcs of tension, thus creating a tonal structure of compelling inner logic that in the contrapuntally strict sections repeatedly bundles the freely rambling passage work ... Also in the Italian Concerto, BWV 971, in spite of his stupendous technique and the impressively quick tempos of the outer movements, Fetz does not allow himself to get carried away with all too much lightly flowing virtuoso jingle-jangle."
Basler Zeitung

"An interesting music-historical concept, which shows the performer not only as a brilliant virtuoso, but simultaneously as a profound fashioner and thinker at the harpsichord, and which again and again allows his musicologically based preoccupation with the material shimmer through, made for an interesting program of old German harpsichord music."
