I don't like the interpretation of the Bach Partitas at all regardless of how historically accurate they may be. There are a few "pitchy" moments which spoil it for me. If you are used to listening to the something like the Arthur Grumiaux (1993) versions of the Partitas you may find these versions hard to accept.
I do not like the track ordering at all - I would have wanted the Faure first - I have to skip to track 10 to get the part of the disc I do like. I don't like the way the Partitas alternate with the chorales at all - choral-violin-choral-violin... horrible. The choral performance by Tenebrae is pretty good. Unless I rip the tracks to another disc, reorder them and delete the Partitas this is not a disc I will put on that often.
