...but haven't heard these sonatas for Violin and, yes, PIANO* (thankfully), have a listen to this performance and think again. (No, I have no axe to grind with "authentic" Baroque purists..).

This 2-CD set was brought to my attention by Gramophone magazine, where it was recommended as "Editor's choice". And what a revelation it was! Admittedly, I wasn't too familiar with these particular Bach sonatas. Musicologists have often placed these six works alongside the Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin and the Brandenburg Concertos because of their wealth of invention and their mature, individual style. They were probably composed ca. 1725 in Leipzig; some 50 years later, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was still championing them as the finest works of his father.

These sonatas, which were not necessarily designed as a cycle from the outset, have a slow-fast-slow-fast sequence of four movements, except for the five-movement G major sonata (BWV 1019) in which the central movement is for the piano alone, while the violin remains silent. The slow movements in particular are of great emotional depth and melodic elegance.

German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann and Italian pianist Enrico Pace, a regular duo since many years, are unsurpassed in their collaboration on these sonatas, with fully equal roles for both performers. Superb musicality, expressiveness and phrasing, combined with great richness of tone, make of this set a breathtaking listening experience. The gorgeous sound of Zimmermann's Stradivarius (once belonging to Fritz Kreisler) balances and blends beautifully with that of Pace's charismatic and tasteful pianism. I can't think of a stronger case for the superiority of the piano as the keyboard instrument on which to hear these sonatas (see comment).

Format: Audio CD
This is a welcome latest release of the German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann. Zimmermann is a 'violinist's violinist' who performs with great elan and musical humility such that his total musicality is refreshingly rewarding yet non-obtrusive. His interpretations of all the major concerti on disc have consistently shown a steadfast dedication to singing and musical integrity rather than an opportunism for showcasing brilliant technical virtuosity. Rather, all of Zimmermann's considerable technical ability is devoted to the expressive realization of the works such that the composer's voice is always heard first without the common imposition of the performer's 'persona' onto the music. Zimmermann is therefore a rarer breed of violinist whose great expressivity can be overlooked due to his more reticent showmanship.

His recording of Ysaye's solo works offers undeliable evidence of this most 'comfortable' and rare marriage between virtuosity and musical voicing. Ysaye's sonatas have never sounded so musically enjoyable to me compared to most recordings of Ysaye which may be either characterized by sterile perfection or the stress of hearing the very real physical challenge of bringing these works to life. Not so with Zimmermann.

These readings of Bach's sonatas for violin and keyboard are likewise most enjoyable to listen to for their musical sensitivity coupled with a real sense of intellect that is so characteristic of Bach's compositions. The mind is an equally present force driving this music in addition to the heart.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I want to offer my profound gratitude to the two previous reviewers, for it was on the basis of their recommendations that I purchased this outstanding CD set. I specifically sought a piano version rather than harpsichord. With all due respect for the period instrument perspective, I admit to preferring the full, gorgeous sound of the piano over the tinny noise clanging away in the background, and these two musicians so beautifully make use of the piano's equality with the violin. The music sparkles with aliveness, all the parts so clear, Bach's genius on full display. Here we have two instruments truly playing together, with incredible coherence, vitality, sensitivity, joy and depth of interpretation. I previously owned the Gould/Laredo version of the Violin Sonatas which I enjoyed for many years, but Zimmermann and Pace go to a whole new musical dimension. Theirs is an unpretentious, respectful and genuine approach to the music. Beautifully engineered sound too (I listened to the music samples from the French Amazon site as one of the reviewers suggested; the sound quality there was not that good, but I decided to buy the set anyway, hoping the CDs would sound better. Indeed, the sound on the CDs is rich, warm, clear, with no distortion whatsoever. On some of the tracks there is a slight extraneous noise, like the sound of deep breathing, or of a sleeve brushing against clothing. But this performance is so sublime that one hardly notices.)

What is it that makes a great performance great? The greatness is in the details. It's the small things that make the difference. There is something about this performance of Bach's tender, exquisite sonatas for violin and harpsichord that makes it really special and a par above the rest. Bach's sonatas for violin and harpsichord are one of my favourite works by this composer, and while I've heard a few performances that really caught my ear, this one is out of this world. Frank Peter Zimmermann is a great violinist, I knew that the instant I heard him perform the Sibelius concerto some 10 or 20 years ago. But listening to this was a surprise. Enrico Pace is a fascinating pianist, too and the duo seem to work really well together.

Not to be missed!
