Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This 2006 Sony CD release does contain, as others have noted, truly excellent performances of J.S. Bach's violin sonatas, BWV 1014-1019. These six sonatas are among the most engaging works Bach ever wrote. I think that this music, which isn't at all forbidding, provides an excellent introduction to Bach's chamber music.

Frank Peter Zimmermann is one of my favourite violinists, having many excellent recordings to his name, and here he is more than ably supported by Enrico Pace. Sony's recording has just the right level of ambience, and this, combined with the ancient violin and modern piano used by Zimmermann and Pace, produce an entirely engaging performance.

Complimentary to this "non-HIP" recording would be an Alpha disc featuring Celine Frisch and Pablo Valetti (on harpsichord) from 2005 Bach: Sonatas for violin and keyboard, BWV 1014-1019 (Sei Suonate à Cembalo certato è Violino solo) /Valetti · Frisch, thus giving you sparkling performances in the "HIP" style!

Highly recommended.

This is pure perfection.

Thankfully, at long last, a great recording of these Bach Sonatas with piano rather than cembalo. The difference is definitely worth your money. Cembalo, despite being authentic (some prefer authenticity), can sound like heavy rain on a tin roof at times, without sustainance, difficult to listen to after a short while. The piano, as here, is lovely to listen to. As is the violinist - he does a very fine job indeed. His tone is gorgeous.

I love it!

If you think you know Bach, but haven't heard these sonatas for Violin and, yes, PIANO* (thankfully), have a listen to this performance and think again. (No, I have no axe to grind with "authentic" Baroque purists..).

This 2-CD set was brought to my attention by Gramophone magazine, where it was recommended as "Editor's choice". And what a revelation it was! Admittedly, I wasn't too familiar with these particular Bach sonatas. Musicologists have often placed these six works alongside the Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin and the Brandenburg Concertos because of their wealth of invention and their mature, individual style. They were probably composed ca. 1725 in Leipzig; some 50 years later, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was still championing them as the finest works of his father.

These sonatas, which were not necessarily designed as a cycle from the outset, have a slow-fast-slow-fast sequence of four movements, except for the five-movement G major sonata (BWV 1019) in which the central movement is for the piano alone, while the violin remains silent. The slow movements in particular are of great emotional depth and melodic elegance.

German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann and Italian pianist Enrico Pace, a regular duo since many years, are unsurpassed in their collaboration on these sonatas, with fully equal roles for both performers. Superb musicality, expressiveness and phrasing, combined with great richness of tone, make of this set a breathtaking listening experience. The gorgeous sound of Zimmermann's Stradivarius (once belonging to Fritz Kreisler) balances and blends beautifully with that of Pace's charismatic and tasteful pianism. I can't think of a stronger case for the superiority of the piano as the keyboard instrument on which to hear these sonatas).

I already have a recording of this work - Grumiaux et al - with harpsichord. This version will not appeal to those who consider, on principle that the piano is unsuitable for works of this nature. But if you don't share this view - and many don't - you will I think love this performance. It is delicate, elegant and witty. If you looked for a piece of music to introduce people to the "the classics" then you would find this hard to beat.

Perfect! I am litteraly thunderstruck by the absolute perfection of these performances of the duo Zimmermann-Pace.
I have been listening to the sonatas for violin and piano by Bach for a very long time.
Rarely I had the opportunity to listen to piano-violin interpretations because they are almost nearly always performed by harpsichord-violin.
There are plenty of CDs available in the market. I have listen to all of them, but I have never found such balance and beauty. The sound of the violin is maravellous, always in tune with the piano, never overwhelming.
The duo found the right tempo for all the movements. The adagio of the F minor, for instance, an amazing piece in itself, is unfolding with such a greatness and solemnity that your heart almost blows off filled with joy and beauty. Indeed you could say the same or even more for many other movements... I strongly recommend anybody to buy this CD. It is a real treasure! You will have hours and hours of pleasure.
