A Selection of Works that Goes beyond the Norm,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Honegger / Martinu / Bach / Pintscher / Ravel (Audio CD)
I don't remember now how I stumbled upon this album, but it's the one that allowed me to discover Frank Peter Zimmermann, whose interpretation of these intellectually deep works lives up to their depth and challenge. I have since bought other CDs featuring Zimmermann, the most recent of which is his double CD on Bach's violin sonatasBach Sonaten Fr Violine und Klavier BWV.It showed an emotive side of Bach that was new to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed this new find. These two CDs are quite different, but Zimmermann demonstrated that he possesses both intellect and sensitivity, but never a dose of sentimentality.
