Incomparable BWV 1043

vvvlas

This is one of the most outstanding performances of great concerto for two violins by Bach. At last you will hear real interplay of two equal (but different) violins. Outer movements are too fast to my taste; but not for these two incomparable virtuosos. Every known detail is underlined, and you will discover many unknown details in all three movements.

Second Fiddle

I think Rachel Podger actually outshines Manze on this recording.

Fuzzy

Many years ago I had a vinyl recording of 1043 with Heifetz and I still miss it. I find this recording on the whole to be fuzzy. Manze & Podger have a tendency to "swallow" some of the notes. They also play the pieces too fast. Sorry, but I deleted it after a couple of plays.

Uncannily similar

ManlyStanley

Ach, Bach! The fine rendition of BWV 1043 here is uncannily similar to my favourite recording of baroque music, which -for decades- has been like a rock in stormy seas, an inexhaustible source of serene bliss and solace: Jaap Schroeder, violin; Christopher Hirons, violin; Academy of Ancient Music conducted by Christopher Hogwood (Decca L'Oiseau-Lyre 400 080-2 OH). On that disc, the BWV 1043 Largo is particularly delicate, moving and uplifting. How do other reviewers rate this recording?

Thank you for info

kjc

Thank you for letting us know that the second violinist is Rachel Podger. She'll get credit in my files. Naturally, Andrew Manze's violin is always superb.

One of the best Bach albums ever!

Kez

In reference to the reviewer comments below, yeah, don't know why they don't give credit to the 2nd violinist, Rachel Podger. Check out her "La Stravaganza" album here on emusic. It's incredible.

Must be!

He must be if he can play two violins at once!
