Bach: Inventions & Partita

by Janine JansenJanine Jansen


3 New & Used Starting at $3.87


Listeners looking for an exercise in virtuosity may find Janine Jansen's 2007 Bach recording a disappointment; the serious nature of the program precludes showboating. But listeners hoping that Jansen had more musical individuality to offer than was revealed in her early recordings of standard violin showpieces may find this recording a wonderful surprise. In the "Inventions," Jansen is an equal partner with violist Maxim Rysanov and cellist Torleif Thedéen in performances of wit, feeling, and subtle grace. In the "Partita" and especially its excruciatingly ecstatic Chaconne, Jansen delivers consummate musicality and surpassing emotional honesty. Decca's sound is close and evocative.
