| The polyphonic violin by BachViolin
Frédéric Pelassy, violin
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Sonata n° 1 BWV 1001
Partita n° 2 BWV 1004
Partita n° 3 BWV 1006
From this impressive instrumental production of Johann Sebastian Bach emerge the masterful Sonatas and Partitas which he intended for solo violin. These works are both the most famous and most difficult to perform in the body of solo violin literature. The masterpiece of the genre is still the prodigious Chaconne, the cathedral of variations set upon the harmonious and melodic pillars of its inescapable theme.
What a genius of inventiveness to have thought of the violin in a resolutely polyphonic spirit.
