Lots of individuality here - comes through delightfully sometimes, but other times literally clips Bach's wings - Bach is a winged bird, and Mullova manages to ground him with rare skill. Maybe its just that its too different from the versions I've heard before, and I'll need to give it more time. Indeed, the violin sounds beautiful, and the chaconne is remarkable.
This is some of the music I love most - my favorite versions of the sonatas and partitas are Milstein's two, and of the concertos, probably Takako Nishizaki's. This version leaves me with mixed feelings, but I am very glad to own it - I'd say every lover of Bach or the violin should own one.
