Well, a little. In *Gramophone for September, there is a pre-view of the
October issue, mentioning a review.

Hear, hear. But it is odd that so many pianists/harpsichordists record
just Book I. Barenboim, should he record WTC II as well, has a nice
opportunity to join with six other pianists who have recorded both the
Beethoven sonatas and WTC I-II in their entirety.
