Bach, J S: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006

Bach, J S: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006

transcribed for solo guitar by Francesco Teopini


Francesco Teopini (classical guitar)

The 6 Sonatas and Partitas enjoy an iconic status: in few other works Bach achieved so much with such restricted means: less is more. The emotional range of these works is astonishing: from the carefree joy of the stylised dances to the human tragedy and redemption in the famous Chaconne.

For other instrumentalists it is tempting to play these monumental works as well, and classical guitarist Francesco Teopini wrote his own transcription for solo guitar, carefully including all of Bach’s notes and counterpoint. The result is astonishing: Teopini achieves an intense, dramatic and idiomatic performance, doing full justice to the richness of the original string version.

Famous Grammy winner guitarist David Russell said of this recording: “His interpretation shows a deep understanding of these major works..beautiful sound, faithfully recorded, congratulations!”.

The booklet text by the artist describes in the process of transcription in detail.

Fenella Humphreys (violin)

Take one motivated and talented young British violinist, inspired by the solo violin music of JS Bach, and mix with some of the best British composing talent of today and the result is: Fenella Humpreys’ “Bach 2 the Future”.

Fenella Humphreys came to performing Bach’s masterpieces in their complete form relatively recently, but was frustrated by a lack of solo works to perform alongside them.

A Kickstarter and remarkable fundraising drive ensued, and Fenella has been able to commission the works that appear on this CD by Adrian Sutton, Peter Maxwell Davies and Sally Beamish (the first volume included works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Gordon Crosse and Piers Hellawell).

“impressive, both in the quality of the playing and the variety of the music…in Ysaye's Third Sonata she yields nothing to the finest recordings in her accuracy and passion, the recording capturing the full range of her tone in a rich but not over-resonant acoustic” BBC Music Magazine, January 2017 *****

“It’s not often that you can say that a commission, or set of commissions, fills a genuine hole in the repertoire. However, that’s precisely what Fenella Humphreys has bestowed upon the musical world with ‘Bach 2 the Future’...the new works themselves deserve long wider performance lives beyond this beautiful beginning.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2017

Bach, J S: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006

arr. for cello


Markku Luolajan-Mikkola (baroque cello)

With two Gramophone Awards to his name and a reputation synonymous with excellence, Markku Luolajan-Mikkola is a musician who is at the top of his profession.

With an established fan base built over his two decades with viol consort Phantasm, Luolajan-Mikkola makes his solo Linn debut in style, tackling what is considered the pinnacle of Bach’s output for violinists: the Sonatas and Partitas.

Transcribing these hugely popular works for cello, especially one in Baroque set-up, was not without its risks, although performing on Baroque cello also offers compelling advantages.

Luolajan-Mikkola takes his interpretative cue from the set-up of the Baroque instrument, which informs such issues as tuning, vibrato, fingering and articulation.

Performing the Sonatas and Partitas on the cello is so challenging that it is almost impossible to imagine a cellist of Bach’s day playing them, but Luolajan-Mikkola rises to the challenge with aplomb.

Luolajan-Mikkola’s main aim in this recording has been to capture emotion and convey expression according to the respective key and character of each movement, which he achieves in spades.

“Luolajan-Mikkola is nothing if not resolute, and he seems to embrace the struggle as an expressive end in itself. His staunch approach to articulation is tricky to love, but the payoff comes in the slow movements: Sarabandes sung low and husky, unadorned, flawed and beautiful.” The Guardian, 25th February 2016 ***

Gunar Letzbor (violin)

The violinist Gunar Letzbor is an established specialist in performing Austrian baroque music. In particular, he has intensively grappled with works by Biber, Muffat and Schmelzer, to name but three examples. In so doing, he has sought a specifically Austrian baroque string sound.

He now turns his attention to the Sonatas and Partitas for Violin BWV1001-1006 by Bach – the Mount Olympus of every violinist, regardless of whether he/she has specialised in historical performance practice. After having immersed himself in these works and performed them in concerts, Letzbor is now introducing them on CD. In this first volume he has pursued an unusual approach. Through the positioning of the microphones in direct proximity to the violin, the listener becomes a participant to a certain extent, and has the opportunity to perceive even the finest nuances in a 'private' setting.

“The acoustics of Letzbor's performance are its principal players: their flatness, and the extreme closeness of the recording, adds an intimacy to these most intimate of pieces. Given Bach's own particularly close relationship with them, it is hard to imagine that he would not have approved.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2013

Bach, J S:

Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006


Christine Busch (baroque violin)

Over the past 40 years Philippe Herreweghe has been working with some extraordinary soloists with whom he has had very fertile and stimulating dialogues, both musically and personally.

Philippe Herreweghe: “It seems important to give these musicians the opportunity to express themselves on the label PHI in works they are particularly fond of.”

This is the case of the present recording. Christine Busch, leader of the orchestra of Collegium Vocale Gent, recorded the Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin by J. S. Bach – a work she admires, and she has been playing since her childhood.

Philippe Herreweghe: “Christine Busch inspires by her technical perfection, her strength, her humility, her sense for poetry, as well as by her qualities needed to serve the greatest of all composer.”

“I find Busch's playing utterly compelling. As well as impeccable intonation, she sustains an eloquently punctuated and gently modulated dialogue, into which her listener is immediately drawn. Her spacious tempos seem chosen to convey the musical argument with cogency and expressive charm.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2013

“Busch brings a wide experience as a chamber and period-orchestra player as well as formidable technical and interpretative skills to these iconic works...Busch speaks directly through her instrument with a warmth and intelligence that engages and disarms.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2013

“Her probing musicianship and reluctance to take anything - editorially speaking - at face value is allied to a considered approach to all six works, generating performances of illuminating intelligence...For a historically informed set of the Sonatas and Partitas that reflects technical and expressive control, these performances are highly commended.” MusicWeb International, 16th July 2013

Bach, J S: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006

Bach, J S: Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin, BWV1001-1006


‘One player, one instrument, one composer: Bach’s unaccompanied violin music has always been the greatest for any player, young or old. Alina Ibragimova, only 23, is already its equal’ (The Guardian)

‘Alina Ibragimova began to play unaccompanied Bach on the violin, and the hush became silence. This was spontaneous, the first sense that something new could happen’ (The Independent)

The dazzling young virtuoso Alina Ibragimova has enthralled audiences for years with her live Bach performances. Critics have acclaimed her faultless intonation, achingly beautiful tone, superlative technique and a musical wisdom far beyond her years. Now, in this important new recording of Bach’s complete sonatas and partitas for solo violin, Ibragimova brings all these qualities and more to create an interpretation that is both excitingly original and profoundly humble. This is music of unfathomable subtlety, astounding virtuosity and great expressive and architectural beauty.

“Alina Ibragimova's… playing… forges a potent synthesis, uniting the steely, eyes-wide-open focus of Christian Tetzlaff (her one-time teacher) and the supple stylistic insights of a Rachel Podger. In the Partitas she's supremely alert to the idiomatic nuances of each dance, while in the Sonatas the fugues are always contrapuntally clear and purposeful in their forward momentum.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2009 *****

“Ibragimova's playing is uncommonly neat, with precise fingerwork and relaxed management of the bow; the virtuoso finale of the Third Sonata sparkles effortlessly while remaining for the most part at a piano dynamic. She plays unequal quavers in the Third Partita's Minuet as naturally as if she'd grown up in the 18th century. And finally, all her stylishness and technical refinement is at the service of an ingrained understanding of the music; she makes us feel where the points of harmonic tension and emphasis are, and she's able to do it without distorting the surface...” Gramophone Magazine, November 2009

“This is an absolutely compelling set of performances, the kind that have you on the edge of your seat wondering at the freshness of it all and what she might do next. Every phrase in these familiar works seems newly minted, every bar totally alive...its sheer energy and self-belief are genuinely thrilling.” The Guardian, 2nd October 2009 *****

“her mastery is very striking indeed. Hers are traditional readings and they pay no homage to the authentic-instrument lobby. She brings a refined, quiet sensitivity to the slow sarabandes of the First and Second Partitas...There is elegance and character in every single piece.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition
