5.0 out of 5 stars Essential listening!, 2 Nov. 2006
A truly marvellous interpretation of Bach's masterpiece for solo violin. Whether one is a fan of the "baroque sound" or not, one cannot ignore the sheer quality of this recording in which Kuijken delivers a deliciously pure and detailed sound with impeccable timing and flawless intonation. The tones are deep and warm with minimal vibrato but incredible "body" - which may (in my opinion) have something to do with the way Kuijken holds the instrument (Italian, built around 1700 and readjusted back to baroque specification) - not touching the chin and without support attachments of any kind, allowing it to resonate that much more freely.

The spacious, reverberant setting of this recording is a matter of preference - some will prefer a "drier" ambience, but to my ears this is a remarkable performance of which the great JSB himself would no doubt be proud! Highly recommended.
