Solo Violin AlbumPurchased

HIRES formats:

The selection of pieces presented here shows a variety of approaches to writing polyphonic music for solo violin. The violin as an instrument has great expressive flexibility. At the same time, there are limitations with regard to scope, double-stop combinations and performance styles that place significant constraints on the choices open to composers. Every composer relates in some way to J. S. Bach's masterly polyphonic compositions for solo violin from 1720. The collection of works from the past 35 years on this recording demonstrates that Bach's legacy, rather than imposing limitations, serves as an inspiration in seeking to vary the expressive idioms that can be elicited from an unaccompanied violin.
