Overview

Bach: Violin and Voice

"These magnificent pieces go to the heart of Bach's artistry.... No matter how many times I play this music, I am always surprised to find in it new intricacies, new touches of beauty." -- Hilary Hahn

Bach composed gorgeous violin passages to accompany the vocal lines of many of his arias and duets. On Bach: Violin & Voice, Hilary Hahn records these passages exquisitely, sharing the program with soprano Christine Schäfer and baritone Matthias Goerne, both also renowned Bach exponents.

Selections from such masterpieces as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor are rendered with beauty and reverence, highlighted by the magical tone of Hahn's Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin. From the Label
