David Grimal (violin)

2CD+DVD

David Grimal, one of the leading French violinists of his generation, releases his third recital for Ambroisie featuring Bach’s solo sonatas and partitas interspersed with the world premiere recording of a piece by exciting young French composer, Brice Pauset.

This recording marks a very special moment in the career of internationally renowned violinist, David Grimal. It is the culmination of a long journey of initiation that has seen David battle, not only with the complexities of Bach’s music and the secrets of the composers language, but also with his desire to discover more about himself and of his own musical voice. Through musical experimentation, the inspiration of fellow musicians, and spiritual enlightenment when playing in India, David Grimal now approaches music, his life and his playing, in a more mature way and has learnt to “ceaselessly question the mysteries of proportion and colour”.

Brice Pauset’s Kontrapartita, given its premiere recording here, was inspired by the ‘morphology and the metaphorical strength’ of Bach’s music. In his booklet note Pauset says this led him to transfer his “impressions of the relationship of the bow to the violin strings into a piece in which bow and violin are treated as found objects”.

The release also includes a bonus DVD of David Grimal playing Bach’s stunning Partita No.2 in D minor, BWV 1004 featuring the monumental and hugely popular ‘Chaconne’.

Ilya Kaler (violin)

Profound in spirit and monumental in scope Bach’s Six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin are arguably the most difficult original solo works ever written for the violin. Their formidable technical challenges, especially the persistent use of multiple stops, are not just virtuoso features but are the natural result of the complexity of Bach’s musical ideas and his understanding of the instrument.

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


“Christian Tetzlaff, always one of the most thoughtful, imaginative violinists, has obviously found Bach's solo works a stimulating and rewarding challenge. Technically, he's most impressive: using a modern bow, he can achieve, with each phrase, the kind of subtle give and take that's normally the preserve of the best Baroque violinists. The performances have a remarkable air of spontaneity, the result of a pervasive rubato, especially notable in the ornamental opening movements of the first two sonatas, and in the freer sections of the Chaconne. ...it's notable how Tetzlaff realises the virtuosity of Bach's violin writing - the moto perpetuo finales of the sonatas sound truly thrilling, full of temperament and fire.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2007

“At some point… every great violinist must square up to the Bach Solo Sonatas and Partitas. Tetzlaff has finally bitten the bullet - magnificently. Among other modern instrumental versions Julia Fischer's 2004 recording… sets much store in maintaining an even beauty of tone. Tetzlaff is edgier. He takes more risks, probes deeper, shows greater stylistic awareness and is refreshingly rooted in the rhetoric of the dance movements which lend a French accent to the Partitas...” BBC Music Magazine, September 2007 ****

“Christian Tetzlaff, always one of the most thoughtful, imaginative violinists, has obviously found Bach's solo works a stimulating and rewarding challenge. Technically, he's most impressive: using a modern bow, he can achieve, with each phrase, the kind of subtle give and take that's normally the preserve of the best Baroque violinists. His chord playing, too, shows wonderful control; in the more densely polyphonic pieces – the Chaconne and the fugues in the three sonatas – it seems there's often little choice between aggressive accentuation and rhythmic distortion caused by spreading the chords. Tetzlaff, however, manages to avoid both pitfalls, with varied arpeggiation that never fails to take account of the music's rhythmic requirements.
The performances have a remarkable air of spontaneity, the result of a pervasive rubato, especially notable in the ornamented opening movements of the first two sonatas, and in the freer sections of the Chaconne. There's a sense of line and balance that ensures that each departure from metronomic regularity sounds entirely natural, unlocking the music's expressive potential. This is even felt when, in a few movements in the partitas, the dance character suggests a more regular, metrical pulse. Apart from this, it's notable how Tetzlaff realises the virtuosity of Bach's violin writing – the moto perpetuo finales of the sonatas sound truly thrilling, full of temperament and fire. Do investigate this outstanding set.”

John Holloway (violin)

“The most important single book in violin literature” (John Holloway)

“Holloway… uses rubato continually: notes extended for expressive emphasis are balanced by moments where the music flows forward unimpeded. This is heard most impressively in the florid introductory adagios to the first two sonatas; the aim is to bring out the music's rhetorical, expressive character and Holloway succeeds brilliantly. In the more energetic music, he suggests the passionate quality of a good live performance - the moto perpetuo finale to the First Sonata is extremely exciting and tension builds powerfully in the passages in the Third Sonata's fugue with reiterated open strings.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2006
