We can’t say enough about this wonderful new recording of unaccompanied Bach by violinist Daniel Stepner. On this CD are all of the Solo Sonatas and Partitas, as well as a stunning arrangement of Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue. Stepner’s insightful and moving interpretations of these pieces are performed on three exceptional period violins: a Stradivari, an Amati, and a Kloz. A must-have for any violinist studying these pieces, Bach lovers, and collectors of solo Bach!
Jason Anick is one of the best jazz violinists of his generation.
We love this band! The Klezwoods From Cairo to St. Petersburg…with love.
A virtuosic display by cellists in the Boston Symphony Orchestra!
