Many thanks to Jean-Luc for the wonderful boxset
That Kremer is one of the greatest violinist of our time is no question. These 1980 recordings demonstrate an understanding of Bach’s aesthetic reaching far beyond that of most of his virtuoso colleagues (Milstein, Shumsky, Perlman, Martzy & Szeryng included). Kremer hits exactly at the intersection between skill, passion, intellect and soul–the essence of Bach. His interpretation of the ubiquitous Ciaccona in particular is a miracle of music-making; I cannot tire of its overwhelming incandescence. This music is Bach’s pure genius.
