Rachel Podger (violin), Jonathan Manson (viola da gamba) and Trevor Pinnock (harpsichord)

The two make a fine match. Both are uncomplicated, utterly instinctive musicians with a sure technical command and sound stylistic sense, and in works as robust and complete as these, that is most of the battle already won. (…) (…) music of a great poetry (…) (…) Podger and Pinnock bring this out superbly (…) (…) this natural beauty – two disc for the price of one – is, quite simply, the best yet. Gramophone

“A recording of Bach's violin sonatas that really hits the spot. Rachel Podger has already attracted much praise for her recordings of the solo violin music, but is heard here to even better advantage in the Six Sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord, BWV1014-19, for which she's joined by Trevor Pinnock.
The two make a fine match. Both are uncomplicated, instinctive musicians with a sure technical command and sound stylistic sense, and in works as robust and complete as these, that's most of the battle already won. But this is also music of great poetry, and, without straining unduly to make their points, Podger and Pinnock bring this out superbly; Pinnock's harpsichord is gently resonant and softly voiced, and Podger coaxes a lyrical flexibility out of her violin, its singing qualities enhanced thanks to a restrained but telling use of vibrato – one which also enables her to play more consistently and blessedly in tune than almost any other Baroque fiddler currently in business.
It's difficult to single out details of this recording for comment; there just seems to be such a tremendous feeling of overall 'rightness' to it.
Maybe the finale of Sonata No 2 seems rather frantic and the wonderful Adagio ma non tanto of No 3 a touch lumpy, but there really isn't much else to criticise. And there are true gems to be enjoyed in the opening movement of BWV1014, where the violin makes an almost imperceptible initial entry, or the warm embrace of BWV1017's Adagio, or practically any of the sparkling fast movements, played with invigorating rhythmic drive and clarity.
This recording's closest period rival, that of Andrew Manze and Richard Egarr, shows a typical wealth of new ideas and inspired moves but is less satisfying as a whole, and suffers from some intonationally hairy moments and a less precisely pointed sound. The only period recording to touch Podger and Pinnock for technical assurance is that of Fabio Biondi and Rinaldo Alessandrini, but in both sound and interpretation it's heavy-handed compared with the spontaneous musicianship and airy texture on display here, and rather meanly it gives the six obbligato sonatas only. Though all the recent recordings of these sonatas have had their merits, this – two discs for the price of one – is, quite simply, the best yet.”

transcription for viola da gamba in D minor

Viola da Gamba Sonatas Nos. 1-3, BWV1027-1029

Toccata in C minor, BWV911


Lucile Boulanger (viola da gamba) & Arnaud de Pasquale (harpsichord)

Imagined as a concert that Bach could have instigated, this disc explores the Cantor ‘s art of transcription and reveals the wealth of influences which the Germanic empire was exposed to in the first half of the eighteenth century. Going back and forth between fantasy and counterpoint, between German and Italian styles, Bach makes these forms and styles his own and thus plays with the rich sound pallets of the viola da gamba and the harpsichord. This album is the first recorded by two rising stars whose tremendous energy and complicity has conferred greater depth to this concert.

“There is no lack of recordings of the sonatas for harpsichord and viola da gamba. I haven't heard that many which really satisfy me, and that often has to do with the balance between the two instruments. That is different here, and as the interpretation is very good I rate these performances among the best I have heard.” MusicWeb International, August 2012

Chorale Prelude BWV645 'Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme'

orch. Respighi


Respighi had always been committed to the art of transcription, arranging Bach’s Violin Sonata in E minor in 1908-09 with acute perception. This was followed during 1929 and 1930 by even greater and more resplendent Bach settings. The powerful sense of orchestral colour acquired during his training under Rimsky-Korsakov is heard to bold yet subtle effect in the Three Chorale Preludes. The Prelude and Fugue in D major is even more gloriously lavish, drawing on the full resources of the modern symphony orchestra, as does the brilliantly realised Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor. Edward Elgar’s transcription is a work of sustained grandeur and rich musical intensity.

Respighi’s most famous transcriptions are probably still those of the ancient airs and dances, first published in 1917, but his Bach transcriptions are hardly less impressive. These richly coloured works rescore and reclothe Bach for Respighi’s time – 1929-30 – and do so brilliantly. They are exciting creations in their own terms, utilising every facet of a modern symphony orchestra, and so too is Elgar’s sole example.

“This is a delightful hour of listening, and for those of you who are weary of “historically-informed” Bach, this could be your disc of the year!...This might not be “authentic” Bach, but it is magnificent Bach.” MusicWeb International, June 2012
