Product Description

Product Description

Over the past 40 years Philippe Herreweghe has been working with some extraordinary soloists with whom he has had very fertile and stimulating dialogues,both musically and personally. Philippe Herreweghe:It seems important to give these musicians the opportunity to express themselves on the label PHI in works they are particularly fond of.This is the case of the present recording.Christine Busch,leader of the orchestra of Collegium Vocale Gent,recorded the Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin by J. S. Bach a work she admires,and she has been playing since her childhood.Philippe Herreweghe:Christine Busch inspires by her technical perfection,her strength,her humility,her sense for poetry,as well as by her qualities needed to serve the greatest of all composer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, mature, free 9 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
These are wonderful performances: free-flowing, mature, virtuoso yet relaxed and devoid of even the slightest tendency to show off. One is drawn into this music instead of impressed by it. The recording is impeccable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb and Snort-Free 'Sei Solo' 6 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
Allow me to besmirch myself by using the most recast literary idiom since Austen's 'It is a truth universally acknowledged..': We Need To Talk About Obbligatos. Nasal obbligatos. Isabelle Faust's solo violin sonatas and partitas have been praised to the roof, through the roof, then, once *on* the roof, scooped up and hurled towards the stratosphere, where more praise was beckoning. She is the zeitgeist's It Girl Violinist, in a zeigeist teeming with young, talented, photogenic fillies who happen to be fiddlers. Greedy Harmonia Mundi spread the works over two albums to increase the revenue and miked the lass so closely that her excellent playing comes with its own 'nasal obbligato' accompaniment. Every snort is audible, rupturing the endless grace and cosmic timelessness of these infinite works. It's a quite shattering way to ruin a piece of heaven.

Thankfully, Christine Busch is on hand. PHI, (Yer Man Herreweghe's shiny new label) have worked wonders in their recording dept. This has space, air, yet feels intimate, and nary a nasal puff, snort or sibilant is to be heard, allowing us to fix our ears on the all important work at hand: Bach's mastery of single-voice polyphony. How does he do it?

Busch, who has worked with Herreweghe before, plays in the HIP idiom - Baroque violin set up and very little vibrato. Worry not - there is none of your harrowing gut string scrape-fests here. She coaxes a wonderfully pure, stark, mellifluous tone from her instrument. It never wearies one with its treble-y insistence as so many violin recitals can. I have struggled with these works because violins don't 'sing' for me the way cellos do, but this one has come the closest to convincing me that they can...in the right hands.

The works speak for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful and engaging performance 30 Jun 2013
By Hater of Essex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I confess that I did not know much about Christine Busch's background and artistry, however I found her performance of Bach's monumental solo violin works quite novel and compelling. Her impeccable technique, fluent and effortless phrasing, tone quality, perfectly chosen tempos and her violin's gorgeous sound make this set a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and Thoughtful Performances 6 Oct 2013
By E. C Goodstein - Published on Amazon.com
I was very pleased to discover this album of the Sonatas and Partitas. Busch takes a very measured and lithe approach, and at times even contrasts slower and quicker moments
with some deliberation (and brilliant virtuosity even so). Everything flows very articulately, and she has impeccable tone. If not the chance-taking of Ibragimova, or Faust's imposing phrasing and 'gravitas' among recent fine recordings too, Busch has fine, distinctive clarity, sense of purpose and poetry in her phrasing and approach. There're many fine recordings of these magnificent works: hers is one of the best I've heard.
