Bach's Violin Sonatas & Partitas (solo)
« on: December 16, 2007, 02:46:47 AM »
There's tons of good names: Nathan Milstein, Arthur Grimiaux, and of course Jascha Heifetz. I'll get the one with most votes hehehehe

For me it's Rachel Podger.

I have only two others (Richard Tognetti and Mark Lubotski) which I never listen to these days, and I don't feel the need for anything else.

This is probably the music that I listen to more than anything else and I love it with a passion!

Milstein for non-HIP and Sigiswald Kuijken-I (DHM) for HIP.

Grumiaux for me (despite the fact that I also have the Milstein-EMI & Heifetz)

Grumiaux is essential IMO, but there is one other one you need: Menuhin's recordings from the 1930s.

I tend to favor Ingrid Matthews (baroque violin) on Centaur.

Szering's recording for Odyssey-Columbia for me.
But listen to the third sonata recorded by 13 years
old Menuhin.

Milstein > all.

Actually, i'd probably like Enescu better but he was too old when he recorded this. A pity.

Am I wrong to love Sergiu Luca's recording?

My choice, too. However, I don't think it's been issued on CD.

Szeryng on DG. I haven't heard his earlier recording though.

My vote goes to Nathan Milstein.

There are others, Grumiaux, Menuhin (last version, the most touching), Perlman that have great qualities.

Perlman vs Kremer in Bach
« Reply #16 on: March 12, 2009, 10:09:01 PM »
i don't have any recording. Kremer has 2, and reviewers say no one plays them like him. other artists welcome too.

Well, on the solo Sonatas & Partitas: Kremer plays them like Schnittke - so if that's your thing. ::)
Perlman plays them like no one else all right: yuk. :P

For proper Bach: Nathan Milstein (EMI) or Sigiswald Kuijken (DHM).

My current favourites are Grumiaux, Szeryng, Edinger and Zehetmair.

Still haven't bought Milstein....would also like to hear what Heifetz has done...
