Verified Purchase
I guess that this CD would have been released by Finlandia (Ms Lev is a Russian living in Finland) until Warner scrapped that imprint around the time this disc was recorded and released - here it is on the super-budget Apex label instead. I thought very highly of Lara Lev's violin playing on a disc devoted to Busoni's sonatas Busoni Complete Violin Sonatas but, even after playing this recording several times, I'm not so sure about this CD and it's companion volume Bach: Sonatas And Partitas For Solo Violin Vol. 2.

That's because Ms Lev seems a touch harsh with her bow every now and again, although she does produce some lovely sounds, too. Perhaps oddly, I quite like the slightly "choppy" approach in these oft-recorded pieces; maybe it adds a bit of rustic charm, or something like that. Sometimes, this approach is quite refreshing after the super-smooth recordings from the likes of Perlman Bach: Sonatas & Partitas (Great Recordings of the Century).

I do think that this CD is worth having as a budget purchase, but, if you get to love these works, other recordings will be needed, too. The Onyx set from Victoria Mullova is lovely Bach: 6 Sonatas & Partitas, and Sigiswald Kuijken's DHM recording is highly-regarded Sonates & Partitas.
