Product Description


technical comment

  • One of the best-selling discs ever made by harmonia mundi.

    "Manze is a violinist with extraordinary flair and improvisatory freedom, the Grappelli of the Baroque... [the ensemble has] unparalleled energy, an irresistibly bounding pulse and sparkling articulation from top to bottom." BBC Music Magazine

    "[Manze and Podger] allow the poetry of Bach's music to unfold in a comfortably measured, lucidly punctuated and eloquently inflected way." Gramophone

    "Even more to my taste is the beautifully matched pairing of Andrew Manze and Rachel Podger. It is not just that gut strings and shorter, Baroque bows give the outer movements an extra clarity and dancing lightness. What clinches my choice is the fire and fantasy of the playing, the way Manze and Podger constantly goad each other to new flights of imagination in their colour and phrasing. The fast movements (and the finale really goes like the wind) have a glorious spontaneous exhilaration, while the largo, expressively embellished, is the perfect counter to those who still equate period instruments with emotional austerity." Richard Wigmore, Daily Telegraph, March 2007
