Anne-Sophie Mutters Bach recording couples his Concertos BWV 1041 and BWV 1042 with the world-premiere recording of the concerto commissioned by her from Sofia Gubaidulina, the Russian composer who regards Bach as her greatest source of inspiration. For the Bach Concertos Mutter reunites with the Trondheim Soloists, with whom she recorded the Vivaldi Four Seasons album that has sold more than 350,000 copies.

It has been over 20 years since Ms Mutter recorded the two Bach concerti and now she clearly demonstrates her changed attitude and "new ideas". Likewise, it has been almost a decade since Ms Mutter recorded the heralded Vivaldi: The Four Seasons/Tartini: The Devil's Trill with the Trondheim Soloists and the relationship, based on touring with them prior to this recording, produces a wonderfully cohesive sound and interplay on both Bach pieces. The 'pieces de resistance' of Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor are the wonderous beauty of the Andante and the Allegro assai movements. Similarly, the Adagio and Allegro assai of No 2 are of exceptional splendor.Read more ›
Quite apart from the quality of the performance, Bach's compositional skill is always going to be a hard act to follow. The Gubaidulina is an interesting piece which again is very well played. But though I do enjoy hearing the second half from time to time, I would gladly pay the full CD price for just the first 6 tracks.
