John Holloway and Davitt Moroney have set up a musically rewarding partnership in these brilliantly inventive works, furthermore adding to their programme the two lovely sonatas for violin and continuo long attributed to Bach, and justly so. In both of them they are joined by Susan Sheppard (continuo cello). For these sonatas Moroney has preferred a chamber organ to a harpsichord.

Michelle Makarski and Keith Jarrett met when Makarski was recording Jarrett's album Bridge of Light. A musical friendship was formed, and the two decided to get together to play these Bach sonatas just for fun. Later on, they decided to record the pieces, which took place in November 2010 at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York.

"Yo-Yo Ma Plays Bach" is one of several titles in Sony's new "Music For You" Series, easily identified by their artsy, photographic covers. The material on this CD has been available previously on CBS Masterworks. True, Ma does play music by Bach, but it is sonatas (originally intended for viola da gamba and not cello) by Bach, and the Sinfonia Concertante by Bach's youngest son, Johann Christian Bach. Not that Sony is lying and not that most people will care or feel cheated, but since this title is obviously aimed at classical novices, I just thought I'd set the record straight. In a similar vein, hopefully those that discover both Bach and Yo-Yo Ma via this disc will like what they hear, and go on to get one of Ma's two recordings of the Bach "Cello Suites" – the real yardstick for composer and performer alike. ~Amazon

Yehudi Menuhin, violin

Bach's famous Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard need no introduction other than to say that they are considered to be the pinnacle of sonata writing in the Baroque era. This two-disc set presents all six sonatas performed by the legendary Yehudi Menuhin and Louis Kentner, recorded in 1951.

Yehudi Menuhin is commonly considered one of the twentieth century's greatest violin virtuosi; he was in the first flush of his mature style in 1951, and his trademark noble tone never fails him. Kentner is always a supportive and tasteful partner, always following the ebbs and flows of the violinist's tempos, and rising and falling appropriately with the music. Slow movements are delicate and warm, and both musicians handle the faster sections with elegance and flair. Menuhin always said that Bach's music should be played "with a spirit of reverence," and he is certainly true to his word here.

I bought this 2-CD set having hear the WF Bach keyboard concerto on Swiss Classic Radio. The first thing to say is this: If you're an Original Instrument Purist, don't buy this set. However, if you've been itching to hear the Bach sons' keyboard concertos, *finally* played on a modern piano, then this is the set to buy. Don't hesitate. These is the kind of recording that will go out of print before long. Buy them now.

It is impossible to overstate the profundity with which Bach has probed the secret inner recesses of the human heart – quite the opposite from the ‘divine sewing machine’ that Colette saw in his work. He was really an opera composer, showing great psychological penetration, not only spiritually but in basic human terms, from the tenderness of love to the terror felt when confronting death. Separated from any liturgical or musicological context, this programme aims to stress Bach’s genius for expressing human passions in all their diversity. –GILLES CANTAGREL

The foundations of Marc Minkowski’s career lie in Baroque music, and he has enjoyed a long relationship with Warner Classics, but this Johannes-Passion (St John Passion) is his first Bach for the label. The work’s terse drama – here presented through just nine singers – is ideally suited to both his scrupulous musicianship and his keen sense of theatre. The French conductor describes Bach’s great masterpieces as “a journey you have to prepare for meticulously, over a long period of time… You come back from it like an explorer comes back from Everest or the Moon – transformed.”
