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


Celebrated Baroque violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk gives a seemingly effortless performance of one of the most technically and intellectually challenging works in the solo violin repertory.

Drawing on his wealth of knowledge and virtuosic prowess Beznosiuk gives an intimate and thoughtful reading full of passion and vitality that is highly attuned to Bach’s intentions.

The sonatas and partitas show off every aspect of violin technique; Beznosiuk delivers a masterclass in making the impossible sound, not only possible, but also musically compelling.

Beznosiuk’s performance of the famous Chaconne in D minor, widely regarded as one of Bach’s greatest contributions, is a highlight.

Performing on a period violin with authentic gut stringing, Beznosiuk has succeeded in creating a modern benchmark recording of this compositional masterpiece.

Originally released in 2011, J.S. Bach: Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin has been re-issued as part of Linn’s ECHO series; a second chance to enjoy the best of the label’s award-winning catalogue.

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 ***
