A sublime recording. I have had copies of it at various points in my life including Canada, Italy and the UK. I had the pleasure of listening to Szeryng and meeting him in Siena in the 1980's and my mother had known him since the 1950's. This recording would probably have become the definitive recording had it not been for the jealousy of Itzhak Perlman who castigated Szeryng in life and does so to this day. This recording is proof of what breeds such sentiments from peers and professionals. Szeryngs intonation, phrasing, bowing are all unique but truly it is his 'naturalness' which makes him superlative. I cannot recommend this recording without stating that Deutsche Grammophon did not sign up performers lightly. A beautiful testament to Bach.
