Viktoria Mullova’s new Bach

“To hear Mullova play Bach is, simply, one of the greatest things you can experience,” wrote Tim Ashley in the Guardian of a concert.

She’s now recorded the solo sonatas for the first time and re-recorded the partitas (this time using gut strings and a baroque bow on a stunning-sounding 1750 Guadagnini). I liked the previous recording of the Partitas a lot, and that was already one of my favourite versions. But this time the result I think is simply amazing, one of those recordings that immediately imposes its vision — compelling you to think this is how the music ought to be played. It is indeed a great thing.
