Of all the great works written for the instrument, perhaps Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin (BWV 1001-1006) are the most wondrous. These works are an essential part of the repertoire and a defining landmark in Western music. German virtuoso Christian Tetzlaff brings his considerable musical integrity, insight, and technique to play in a remarkable marathon performance in two parts. Here is a rare opportunity to hear this glorious music all at one time. “One of the most brilliant and inquisitive artists of the new generation” (New York Times).
