Editors’ Notes A natural successor to her iTunes Essentials recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Janine Jansen captures Johann Sebastian Bach's sound world with a delightful transparency and vitality—the same spirit of that imbues her previously released, groundbreaking performance. Her twelve-piece ensemble brings energy and invention to the concertos. There's also a dynamic verve to the sonatas, on which she duets with her father Jan Jansen on harpsichord. The famous "Air on a G-string" closes the album with serene, meditative grace.
