THE WASHINGTON POST
"Hans-Juergen Schnoor" (headline)
  "German harpsichordist Hans-Juergen Schnoor gave a stunning account of Bach's monumental "Goldberg Variations" at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Sunday. The heavily attended concert -- Schnoor's 98th performance of the variations -- was the second installment of the Capitol Hill Chamber Music Festival.
  Bach's 30 variations, linked by the bass theme of an opening aria, unwind in a chain of almost unimaginable complexity and brutal technical challenges. Schnoor met all of that head-on with finely articulated flights. His deliberate approach was tempered by an expressive freedom illuminating the music's subjective beauty. Schnoor paid full attention to Bach's driving rhythmic impulse, the anchor for his inscrutable architectural logic. As Schnoor hurtled through Bach's contrapuntal labyrinth, the harpsichordist absorbed the audience in the rising emotional tension, culminating in a final burst of keyboard fireworks.
