About this essential album in the Analekta discography : "Bach’s solo violin music has always very dear to my heart and central to my performing repertoire. Being able to record these monumental works early in my career was a rare privilege, and I will always be grateful to Analekta for giving me this wonderful opportunity. Though my interpretations have evolved over the years, and will continue to evolve throughout my life as I evolve myself, it gives me great pleasure to revisit these recordings and remember with pride the incredible journey of recording these masterpieces." James Ehnes
