J. S. Bachs sonatas for violin and harpsichord and his solo partitas for violin and flute are presented on this recording on solo cello or on cello and organ. The transcriptions were made by Ditta Rohmann and Laszlo Fassang. The two instruments are a special feature of the recording: the cellist plays every piece on violoncello piccolo, a five-string cello often used in Bachs time, while the Thuringian style organ of the Cegled Lutheran church was modeled on instruments the master had used in his time.

Bachs Sonaten und Partiten für Violine solo umfassen sechs Werke für das Instrument ohne jede Begleitung. Der mexikanische Geiger und Komponist polnischer Abstammung, Henryk Szernyg, spielte den Zyklus gleich zweimal ein. Seine Aufnahme aus dem Jahr 1967 entstand im Théâtre Municipal in Vevey (Schweiz) unter Tonmeister Vittorio Negri. Szeryng schafft es, die Musik für sich selbst sprechen zu lassen und ihr gleichzeitig seine eigene Note zu geben.

Stephen Schultz, called among the most flawless artists on the Baroque flute by the San Jose Mercury News, flute extraordinaire by the New Jersey Star-Ledger, and praised for performances of stunning warmth and agility by the Los Angeles Times, is joined by harpsichordist Jory Vinikour. Twice GRAMMY® nominated, and hailed as an authentic poet of the harpsichord by Denni Republik (Czech Republic), his performances have received raves in Gramophone and elsewhere. The four sonatas recorded here belong to a type of chamber music that was at the cutting edge of developments during the 1720s and 1730s: the duo for melody instrument and obbligato harpsichord.

Almost every music lover has probably heard Erich Höbarth play at least once: active as Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s concertmaster, as first violinist of the Quatuor Mosaïques, and in many other positions of musical life, heard in numerous recordings and television broadcasts, he is an almost omnipresent figure. Höbarth unites historical performance practice with the self-assured poise of an individual artistic personality. The Viennese violinist has found here a congenial partner in the young Aapo Häkkinen from Helsinki, who, exactly like Höbarth, can already boast extensive experience as an ensemble director.

"Isabelle Faust has never cultivated the whale-boned red-carpet glamour that many female soloists feel obliged to pursue. On stage and off, the German violinist's manner is relaxed, her style understated. She sports a gamine, Jeanne d'Arc crop and, save for the tell-tale violinist's love-bite just below her jaw, you might guess her to be an architect or an academic. In a way, she is both, for an appreciation of musical structure and an interest in historical research are integral to her work.

Violinist Boris Begelman plays the "Himalayas for violinists" (Georges Enescu) on a period instrument by Louis Moitessier from the 1790s. J.S. Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin are considered by musicologists and many musicians as the pinnacle of musical achievement, arguably the composer’s most demanding and emotionally penetrating works. They undoubtedly have a kind of iconic status in the violin repertoire. Yet, little is known about the background of these fascinating works and the correlations between the music and Bach’s personal life.

The sonatas and partitas for solo violin (BWV 1001–1006) are a set of six works composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. They are sometimes referred to in English as the sonatas and partias for solo violin in accordance with Bach's headings in the autograph manuscript: "Partia" (plural "Partien") was commonly used in German-speaking regions during Bach's time, whereas the Italian "partita" was introduced to this set in the 1879 Bach Gesellschaft edition, having become standard by that time. The set consists of three sonatas da chiesa in four movements and three partitas (or partias) in dance-form movements.
The set was completed by 1720, but was only published in 1802 by Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn. Even after publication, it was largely ignored until the celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim started performing these works. Today, Bach's Sonatas and Partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire, and they are frequently performed and recorded.

J.S. Bach's sonatas for solo violin, part of a long tradition of virtuoso works for the instrument, seem unsuited to transcription. But a guitar comes closer than perhaps any other instrument: it embodies a tension – not the same tension as with a solo violin but a tension nonetheless – between melodic material and polyphony. In the hands of Finnish guitarist Timo Korhonen they produce an unusual effect.
