Beautiful, passionate. Not by modern standards a perfect Bach performance, but who cares.. The chaconne is a real tear jerker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-packaged, long unavailable 28 Aug. 2006
By Jazzman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Looks like Philips is re-packaging all Mullova's past recordings into two-disc sets. This one has the Bach partitas, which are extraordinary (the original Mullova recording of this is very rare and commands high prices). I assume this is the same recording, paired with another previous recording of the Bach violin concerti.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spark of individuality 24 Feb. 2007
By Anubala Varikat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lots of individuality here - comes through delightfully sometimes, but other times literally clips Bach's wings - Bach is a winged bird, and Mullova manages to ground him with rare skill. Maybe its just that its too different from the versions I've heard before, and I'll need to give it more time. Indeed, the violin sounds beautiful, and the chaconne is remarkable.

This is some of the music I love most - my favorite versions of the sonatas and partitas are Milstein's two, and of the concertos, probably Takako Nishizaki's. This version leaves me with mixed feelings, but I am very glad to own it - I'd say every lover of Bach or the violin should own one.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very good though rather cool and intellectual 23 Jun. 2013
By A. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is excellent, unfailingly musical playing. One of the best versions of these works. It is cool in style, though. Very good albeit rather intellectual. For that bit more emotion and connection you could turn to the lyrical Szeryng, the wonderful Isabelle Faust or the intense and musical Maria Madroszkiewicz.

1.0 out of 5 stars edgy, and NOT in a good way. 27 Jan. 2009
By Penny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I find Mullova's sound really harsh and difficult to listen to, like she is constantly frustrated with her own lack of imagination and therefore has to do weird things that have nothing to do with Bach. This "interpretation" of Bach is very clean, but when does that matter other than in competitions? That is about all Mullova can be known for: good intonation. It is soulless and I do not enjoy her playing at all. Sorry, Victoria, but this is my honest opinion. Perhaps she can play Stravinsky Concerto, but not this.
