Award-winning violinist Christian Tetzlaff continues his highly successful series of chamber music recordings on Ondine with a new recording of Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin (BWV1001–1006) by Johann Sebastian Bach.

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 Christian Tetzlaff offers fascinating perspectives of these masterpieces.

Christian Tetzlaff is considered one of the world’s leading international violinists and maintains an extensive performing schedule. Musical America named him ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ in 2005 and his recording of the violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann, released on Ondine in 2011 (ODE11952), received the ‘Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik’. Gramophone selected the recording of the Schumann Violin Sonatas with Lars Vogt (ODE12052) as ‘Disc of the Month’ in January 2014. In addition, in 2015 ICMA nominated Christian Tetzlaff as ‘Artist of the Year’. His recordings on Ondine with Brahms’ Trios (ODE12712D) and Violin Concertos by Dvorák and Suk (ODE12795) released in 2015 and 2016 earned Grammy nominations.
