Format: Audio CD
Most recordings of these great sonatas, like the beautiful Grumiaux-Jaccottet collaboration, combine a modern violin with a harpsichord, with the result that the keyboard contribution becomes rather eclipsed in the louder passages. One way to hear the music with the equal balance that Bach would have expected is to partner the harpsichord with the more intimate sound of a Baroque violin, as in the wonderful recording by Monica Huggett and Ton Koopman. Another way (that Bach wouldn't have expected) is to pair a modern violin with a piano, as in this splendid set of performances by Mela Tenenbaum and Richard Kapp. In addition to the perfect balance between the instruments the performances themselves are sensitive and moving. Highly recommended, although not for purists. (I haven't heard Mela Tenenbaum's companion recording using an older violin in partnership with a harpsichord.)

A Great Recording, Simply Lovely July 15 2009
By Karl W. Nehring - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This two-CD set is actually part of an ambitious undertaking: ESS.A.Y Recordings recorded these sonatas in two different versions, this one featuring Ms. Tenenbaum on a modern violin and accompanied by a modern piano played by Richard Kapp; the other recording (reviewed below) features Ms. Tenenbaum playing an older violin and accompanied by a harpsichord played by Gerald Ranck. My sample of the piano recording came with an enclosed coupon allowing the purchaser to order a copy of the harpsichord set for the bargain price of $8.

As for this piano/violin recording, all I can say is that this is a simply lovely recording. Ms. Tenenbaum and Mr. Kapp really seem to have an appreciation for the beauty of Bach's music. This is not mechanical playing--it is thoughtful and expressive, revealing the lyricism of the music. Even though I found the performances so expressive and communicative, never did I feel as though the musicians were overdoing the interpretive side of things. The emotion that came through in their playing seemed both heartfelt and respectful.

The end result is, as I said above, lovely. This is a wonderful recording that should appeal to all fans of Bach--indeed, all lovers of music--and the sound quality is excellent.
