I will base my review on the "Chaconne" alone. I worked with this piece for 10 years as a player before I finally got it "right", and I am - as a composer and poet - deeply influenced by the music by Bach, especially the pieces for violin solo.

The Chaconne has been played faster and faster the last 50 years, and it has almost turned out to be a showpiece - especially for those players that claim to play it historically "right". The guitar-players have also made this piece "theirs", after the stunning recording by Andres Segovia. I think I have heard at least 50 recordings by this piece, from Enescu and Busch to Müllova. Not to mention many very great live-performances.

Hilary Hahn's recording is the version that comes closest to my idea of how this piece should be performed on a modern instrument. Yes, the tempo is very slow - as it should be. It is not slow because of limitations from the player, but because this is the tempo the piece itself - in my opinion - asks for. The detail-work here is just overwhelming, and no other player has taken me into the depth of the music as Hahn does - maybe with the exception of Johanna Martzy. So if you are interested in the spirit behind the music by Bach you should go for this one. If you are more interested in fireworks, you will be bored. But then Bach never should have been your composer anyways.

I do a lot of writing in my work, so I don't hesitate to write book reviews but my musical abilities are so limited and little used that I do hesitate to discuss the work of anyone who clearly had more talent in their little finger than I have in total. That being said, I remain entranced by this recording and play it frequently. Ms Hahn brings what I believe to be great technique and incredible enthusiasm, drive, and energy to these pieces. The sheer joy of accomplishment shines through these performances. Another descriptor I might use for this encounter of player and part is fearless. With all that there is profound respect shown for the emotional range found in these two partitas. Yet it is the music that is shining through, not the musician. No doubt Ms Hahn will play these tunes differently in 30 years. Let's hope so. But she won't play them any better. She and Bach are helped along by very clear and highly defined sound. If these recordings don't make JS Bach smile up in heaven then none will.

Let me start by saying that this is the first Hilary Hahn recording I've listened to, although I've been deeply immersed in classical music for the past 5 years or so.
I should also mention that I'm extremely biased towards Arthur Grumiaux's renowned recordings of these pieces, so much so that I won't even listen to Milstein's (and have yet to venture into Podger's.)

So I wasn't expecting much when listening to this for the first time yesterday. Boy was I shocked! I mean, how old was she when she recorded this? I won't say that she surpasses Grumiaux...I feel that her playing is slightly less aggressive or dynamic than his, but that's not meant as a knock because I find her playing to be beautiful and probing.

This is a perfect example of artistic interpretation; when you love a piece of music listen to several artists playing it. Each will have their own "take."

This CD is awesome and will become a much listened to part of my collection.

Ms. Hahn has a phenominal talent. Her knowing interpretation of the Partitas 2 and 3 goes to the spirit of Bach in a spine-tingling, joyous way. The famous Chaconne from Partita no. 2 can be played over and over always with fresh impressions. Superb.

Many congratulations for such a GREAT and WONDERFUL Johann Sebastian Bach Debut album!! There are so many recordings of these Bach sonatas and partitas for solo violin, but this one stands out as one of a really extraordinarily superb quality. Besides the superb quality of this recording, this recording is so particular since Hilary Hahn recorded these very difficult pieces for solo violin when she was still a "teenaged girl" aged 17 - and with this 1997 recording Hilary Hahn proved her extra class at this very young age by such a mature and remarkable as well as intelligent interpretation which can be heard in the same quality only from few other remarkable violinists. With her Debut album Hilary Hahn showed what a serious and mature violin virtuoso she is. This recording makes you immediately recognise how intensely and profoundly Hilary Hahn approaches the Bach sonata as well as the two partitas, how she explores and immerses them and so discovers and brings out for all to hear the spirit of them and gets out what is deeply inside them and inside their literature. And in doing so, Hilary Hahn knows exactly how to play each note and she manages to play these pieces technically without mistakes and provides a superb intonation and interpretation of them. Hilary performs these pieces for solo violin with much energy and spirit, but well under control and straightforwardly, she transfers all the excitement and vibrations of these wonderful pieces in an almost frightening precision and cleanliness of intonation and so she establishes a true communication between her and us, the listeners and her audiences. Hilary Hahn (even back then) avoides any unnecessary over-emphasising and flourish - and false notes could already not be heard from her even in this, her Debut recording!Read more ›
