HD-Vinyls 24/192 (DGG) Johann Sebastian Bach – 6 Sonatas and Partitas For Solo Violin BWV 1001-1006 (Henryk Szeryng)


Many many thanks to our Jean-Luc for this gigantic gem
This is just pure Bach, renditions of violin sonatas and partitas done by a master. The recording is exceptionally clear. There is no background sound whatsoever, which adds to the purity. A superior performance of this beautiful music. Learning the whole of Bach’s six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin is a remarkable feat. Playing them with such perfect sensitivity and expression falls squarely in the realm of the superhuman. Even after repeated listenings, certain movements of this recording bring a lump to my throat and make my heart flutter. Violinists especially, I think, will discover special meaning and beauty in this recording. However, anyone who listens to classical music will find this recording to be one of the jewels of their record collection.

  1. Wow! This blog is a real treasury. IT IS A REAL CORNUCOPIA.
    Rach, you do really pamper our community of classical music lovers, for which a great thank for you.
    After this Bach-Szeryng gem my only dilemma, not, this is rather a trilemma, what music I’ll listen to this evening: a) this new one, the Pogorelich album, or c) the Intercord Bach-box you’ve posted some days ago.
    EVERLASTING THANKS TO YOU FOR ALL OF THESE WONDERS!

  2. Since it’s quite a long piece of work, I thought to listen to only a part of it, but once you’re in it’s impossible to push the stop-button. Maybe the best solo-violin I’ve ever heard.
    Thank you, Rach and Jean-Luc, you guys always achieve to top yourselves. Fantastic!

  3. real masterpiece and great gift also.
    lot of thanks!
    i cherished my Melodiya vinyl license copy of the set for 3 decades.
    overcomes with ease the 2 earlier renditions of maestro done for Columbia and HMV/Capitol before.
    there are just 3 or 4 comparable competitors only, mainly:
    – Grumiaux (PHILIPS)
    – Milstein (also his last attempt done AFAIK in 1977 for DG)
    – Haendel (her Testament vinyl recording)
    and!
    of course!
    the greatest!
    – Martzy (3 separate British Columbia mono LPs)
