J.S. Bach: Solo & Double Violin Concertos

Posted by i kadek Mardika on Wednesday, March 21, 2012

"[Manze and Podger] allow the poetry of Bach's music to unfold in a comfortably measured, lucidly punctuated and eloquently inflected way." --Gramophone

“Manze is a violinist with extraordinary flair and improvisatory freedom, the Grappelli of the Baroque... [the ensemble has] unparalleled energy, an irresistibly bounding pulse and sparkling articulation from top to bottom.” --BBC Music Magazine

"The Academy of Ancient Music reveal a judicious blend of scholarship and exquisite taste. Andrew Manze has a well-deserved reputation for baroque interpretation, and his colleague Rachel Podger, also on violin, performs with equal authority. 
The slow movements of the two solo concertos are particularly striking for their beauty and style...the sound is vibrant but without so much reverberation that the inner parts of the faster movements might have been obscured. The Academy's current incarnation has expanded that scope considerable, and this CD demonstrates that its interpretations of Bach are among the finest presented today." --Audio
