"On one stave, for a small instrument, this man writes an entire world of the deepest thoughts and the most powerful feelings." These are the words of Johannes Brahms, who venerated Johann Sebastian Bach's six Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, a miracle of musical timelessness and expressive depth. Violinists approach this music with a sense of awe; they study it for their entire lives and yet never feel absolutely to be able to do it justice. They present the ultimate challenge, a life task. Christoph Schickedanz's understanding of these works has grown out of musical practice an independent reading between the poles of a "traditional" and a "historically informed" view of Bach. To his mind, the violin is only the medium for which these works were conceived: "There is absolutely no need for this music to be played on certain instruments in order to achieve a 'correct' interpretation."
