Swiss violinist Sebastian Bohren and his recording of the complete Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo by Johann Sebastian Bach. On volume I the following works have been recorded: Partitas Nos. 2 and 3 in D minor / E Major, Violin Sonata No. 2 in A Minor. Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas have an iconic status in the violin repertoire. Yet, little is known about the background of these fascinating works. Bach’s autograph manuscript is dated in Köthen in 1720, and it is commonly considered as the year when the cycle was completed. In his booklet notes Sebastian Bohren offers new perspectives of these masterpieces. Sebastian Bohren is considered one of the world’s most promising young violinists and maintains an extensive performing schedule.
