Frighteningly excitingly powerfully intense,
This review is from: Bach, J.S.: Complete Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin (Audio CD)
Grumiaux is to Bach as Ashkenazy is to Rachmaninov. This has to be among the most intense and exciting violin playing in existence. Yes, Bach himself was a violinist, but it takes a player the calibre of Grumiaux to interpret it the way it ought to be performed.
When you've checked this one out, it's worth taking a listen to his rendition of the Violin Sonatas as well.
