This specially priced new recording features guitarist Timo Korhonen with the Partitas for Solo Violin by J.S. Bach, and his own arrangement for modern guitar.
This release follows on the success of the Bach Sonatas for Solo Violin (ODE1128-2). While many guitarists carry single movements in their repertoire, such as the famous Ciaccona from Partita No. 2, Timo Korhonen’s acclaimed project covers the complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin.
Korhonen’s transcriptions remain very faithful to the original violin score: “My aim was to execute the musical content, as if Bach had actually written it for six-string guitar back in 1720.” Timo Korhonen

“Korhonen's phrasing and articulation are intelligent and musical, and the execution is clean and crisp. Sometimes the downstroke of the bow is imitated...at other times...a more flowing, guitaristic approach is adopted.”
“Korhonen always adheres closely to Bach's concepts, so that the notes added to the original violin score, filling out the harmony and adding basses, are subtle and never harmonically jarring...He plays with the intensity of one who really knows these works...one feels his love and admiration for these pieces.”
