Zimmerman is one of the best playing some of the greatest music for the violin.

This is a superb DVD!
For a violinist, Frank Peter Zimmermann represents the highest level of musicianship. The Documentary is not just about Bach, in fact it has lots of other footage, including his son and his own performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Danish Radio Symphony (this is excellent).
He plays like Kogan, not surprisingly and his technique is as flawless as any violinist I have seen or heard.

This is an AMAZING DVD release of the German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann. It is a DVD counterpart to the Sony CD of the same program that Zimmermann recorded with pianist Pace. 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.

This DVD is an absolute treasure for any admirer of Frank Peter Zimmermann who may have not had the special opportunity to attend a live performance. For such a soft-spoken artist who rarely rides on the publicity "wagon", the documentary offers a surprisingly close look at Zimmermann's concert-going life as well as an intimate look from within his home as he listens and coaches his young son Serge Zimmermann, violinist. Frank Peter's Beethoven string trio and Sibelius concerto rehearsals and performances are also presented in excerpts while Zimmermann speaks candidly concerning these performances. As well, he discusses his personal approach and experiences to performing the Bach sonatas for violin and keyboard at an illuminating level.

This DVD features two top musicians who are technically skilled but most of all very musical, intelligent and honest.
They don't care about personality and status and are both very reluctant in making recordings and appearing in public. They both possess the highest craftmanship, though. I have known Enrico Pace for a long time, since his 1st place in the Liszt tournament in The Netherlands. Since then he has grown tremendously in a musical way, from young and eager "showoff" to the calm and intelligent musician he is now. Frank Peter Zimmerman certainly is one of the best violinists in the world today. But when they come together they produce magic. It takes a certain type of character to play these pieces and stay true to Bach, without going on an ego trip. These two men have done excellent, they put the music first and you can notice they are grateful and humbled that they are allowed to perform this heavenly music.
The DVD is of excellent quality, both picture-wise and sound-wise, and it is recorded in a fine acoustic atmosphere that adds solemnity to the performance. There were very moving and emotional parts, for me for example the Adagio from the F minor sonata BWV 1018.
The documentary "Bach and me" was also highly enjoyable, giving a peek into the private life of F.P. Zimmerman and how he balances it with his career, even his son is shown playing the violin, also a great talent.
All in all, you will certainly not regret buying this DVD if you like Bach. The love for music is tangible by these sublime and honest musicians.

Zimmerman is one of the best playing some of the greatest music for the violin. The performances are beyond outstanding. However, I found the video editing extremely annoying. Several camera perspectives are used. Rarely are we allowed to focus on one view for more than five seconds. Sometimes the editing flashes from view to view in as little as one second. For a violinist primarily interested in watching Zimmerman play, during some of the more interesting and challenging violin sections we are looking Pace's face or the backs of the audience heads. The jumping cameras were so distracting that I found myself closing my eyes and just listening. Nevertheless, the performances are a must for any Bach collection. Buy the CD, by all means.

This is sensational music-playing -- and composing. I take away one star because in the faster movements ("toe-tapping Bach") the violin gets buried in the piano accompaniment, played on a Steinway grand (eight-foot?) with the lid fully open. It would have been better for proper balance to have the lid partally open, as it usually is for accompanying, or closed.

I suggest starting with the accompanying one-hour documentary, "Bach and me." In it Zimmermann discusses, among other things, some of the more important movements and then plays them, in full.
