Pavlo Beznosiuk - J.S. Bach: Sonatas & Partitas -

01 October 2011
Mike D. Brownell

With no shortage to choose from, it's easy to imagine why listeners might be overwhelmed when choosing a recording of Bach's Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin. Countless violinists have recorded concerti grossi, the seminal works, some numerous times, on different styles of violins, in different venues each offering unique sound qualities. Baroque violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk throws his hat into the ring with this 2011 Linn Records set. Beznosiuk describes his playing of Bach not so much as interpretation - which he terms irrelevant - but as a real-time dialogue with the composer. To this end, Beznosiuk's playing does seem very conversational, even drawing listeners into the discourse. His effortless technique shines through in the much more animated, vivacious fast movements.
