This review is from: The Violin Sonatas: Bach Sonaten für Violine und Klavier BWV 1014-1019 (Audio CD)
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.
