I was told by my music teacher many years ago, that the longer one listened to classical music, the smaller the ensemble one would enjoy. I am 60, and have reached the string quartet and soloist stage. I have enjoyed Bach's music for solo violin and cello for years, and play the viola transcription of the cells suites myself for enjoyment. I have several versions of Bach's solo violin music, and value Hilary Hahn's interpretations above all others, most especially her interpretation of the Chaconne. I believe this is one of the great compositions in western music, and I have heard no better performance than hers. It is difficult to put into words exactly why, but this is a critic's task. I suppose it is due to the combination her wonderfully deep and intense tone and precise articulation, but it is also due to the magic of her own interpretation of this great composition. I have listened to this track many times, and never cease to be deeply moved by it, as well as the remainder of the music. Six stars for this track alone. The other tracks rate five easily, for the same reasons.

This is Bach at top speed! Hahn's enthusiasm for the music comes across and her play is refreshingly sharp and clear. My only reservation would be that everything is taken at a cracking pace: a great virtuoso performance, but not for those who like a more lyrical interpretation. However, I would highly recommend this disc; although it is only a selection of the sonatas and partitas.

I have only been listening to nine different recordings of these works, so I am in fact a complete novice in the field (and no musicologist at all), all the same I will try to give short comments on these nine interpretations that just might help you to choose which set you want to buy.

My personal favourite is no doubt John Holloway's recording (on ECM). When I first heard it I had only been listening to Shlomo Mintz (on DG) and Hilary Hahn (on Sony), so I feared the great Ciaccona/Chaconne of BWV 1004, because both of those artists' interpretations of that movement sounded like musical warfare, full of shrieks and noises. But Hallelujah! Guess what happened? The movement made sense to me for the first time - in Holloway's hands it is actually music! And the rest of the set also sparkles in Holloway's recording. What is so special about Holloway's version is that it has an almost spiritual, metaphysical aspect to it that nobody else achieves. It is a recording full of sublime transcendental beauty. That aspect of course is emphasized by the wonderful church acoustics (another great Manfred Eicher production from ECM). The booklet contains a performer's note and a few facsimile pages of Bach's beautiful handwritten score. If you are looking for just one recording, you don't really have to read further - I recommend that you buy Holloway's set.

If you have not bought Holloway's set yet, I have to say a little more about Mintz and Hahn: The aggressive approach in Mintz' Ciaccona/Chaconne is more or less present throughout Mintz' recording and in my opinion his playing does not quite justify it - it is "agitated" without having a reason to be so. If you want the sort of expressive power which Mintz is trying to put into these works Nathan Milstein (on DG) is a better option.

A truly fantastic recording. Hilary is one of the finest Bach interpreters alive today. If you love the Bach violin partitas then I highly recommend this album!
