Bach: Violin Sonatas & Partitas
An artist with wide musical sympathies, Christian Tetzlaff is one of the most probing and mercurial violinists of modern times. Here, he proves a magnificent guide to some abstract and sublime music, and this is his third recording of the works. These three sonatas and three partitas seem to take us to places of such emotional and intellectual depth that it’s hard to imagine it can be done with just one instrument. Tetzlaff lets this music sing and soar, as well as meditate and reflect, making this a wonderfully intense and rewarding experience.
