5.0 out of 5 stars J S Bach Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, 5 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: J.S Bach: Sonatas & Partitas (Audio CD)
This set of the unaccompanied violin works by the young Russian virtuoso Anna Ibragimova is yet another sign of the wealth of talent in the area of chamber and instrumental music. Ms Ibragimova plays on a modern instrument with modern bow, but in a style informed by period-instrument practice. This means that she plays in a light and dance-like way, and that the big chords are spread or arpeggiated, the effect of the latter being lesss stress-laden than some of the versions of the older performers (Heifetz, Milstein, Grumiaux, Perlman), who try to play as many of the notes of a chord at once, or spread them 2-2 without any relaxation of rhythm. Ms Ibragimova has a silvery tone, which is beautiful and even: it directs one to the music. Having said all this, Ms Ibragimova is capable of releasing the emotion of these pieces. Hers are performances of decorum and grace, ideally balanced.
