“This work could be aptly titled 'Bach Re-Imagined for Piano,' as Bach's legacy is transcribed and transformed for today's pianists...As would be expected from a pianist of Hewitt's stature, the pieces mostly require advanced musicality and/or technique...Since the pieces are all relatively short, they would work well inserted into a solo recital program individually or as a small grouping.”--American Music Teacher
“All three of Hewitt's transcriptions of Bach organ preludes are beautiful, lyrical, and wonderful additions to the literature...The variety featured in Hewitt's Bach Book for Piano will have something that appeals to everyone.”--Clavier Companion
