Bach: 6 Sonatas & Partitas for Violin Solo [Exclusive Free Sampler Included]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
Everybody has their favorites among the great postwar recordings of Bach's sonatas and partitas for solo violin. Some prefer the steely lucidity of Jascha Heifetz's 1952 recordings or the silken profundity of Arthur Grumiaux's 1960-1961 recordings or the objective severity of Henryk Szeryng's 1968 recordings or the sublime austerity of Sandor Végh's 1971 recording or the passionate clarity of Nathan Milstein's 1975 recording. Some even prefer the unrelenting intensity Joseph Szigeti's long out-of-print 1955-1956 recordings. Taped in Columbia's New York City studios by Seymour Solomon and originally released on his Vanguard label, Szigeti's performances may lack Heifetz's ...

Some prefer the steely lucidity of Jascha Heifetz's 1952 recordings or the silken profundity of Arthur Grumiaux's 1960-1961 recordings or the objective severity of Henryk Szeryng's 1968 recordings or the sublime austerity of Sandor Végh's 1971 recording or the passionate clarity of Nathan Milstein's 1975 recording. Some even prefer the unrelenting intensity Joseph Szigeti's long out-of-print 1955-1956 recordings. Taped in Columbia's New York City studios by Seymour Solomon and originally released on his Vanguard label, Szigeti's performances may lack Heifetz's polish or Grumiaux's refinement or Milstein's translucency or Szeryng's transparency or Végh's transcendency. But Szigeti's performances do have something all of them lack: a rough attack and a raw honesty that goes deep into the emotional, ontological, eschatological, and metaphysical meaning of the music. While Szigeti's interpretation might be more than listeners accustomed to Heifetz, Grumiaux, Milstein, and Szeryng can take, listeners who revere Végh's austerity may find Szigeti's intensity to their taste. Vanguard's remastered sound is very clear, very close, and very present.
