ArtistsAntje Weithaas (violin)
J.S. Bach’s Sonata in A minor resembles a sacred passion without words; Ysa˙e’s dramatic Third Sonata is entitled Ballade, and the first movement of Ysa˙e’s Fifth Sonata evokes a sunrise (L’aurore). The CD closes with Bach’s Partita in E major! ‘This work is the simplest one in the entire cycle of sonatas and partitas. I don’t mean “simple” as “easy to play”, but in terms of its musical statement: here, Bach chooses the majestic, positive key of E major.’
‘… Nevertheless, it is particularly exciting and refreshing to hear Weithaas in true isolation with her beautiful and varied tone (on her modern Greiner violin, which she plays with extraordinary skill of compensation, especially when maintaining the heavy poise of the Chaconne) and absolutely meticulous technique. Most of all, you can hear her complex thinking clearly evidenced in the light but ever-present dance lilt in all Bach’s movements, despite their musical and intellectual gravitas.’ - Gramophone, March 2015
