  1. This is just stunning. I feels like something I didn’t know I needed but I did (if that makes sense).

    Oh boy. Is it just me, or was that just about perfect? Thank you very much for bringing it to attention. I’m going to listen to it again now.

    Glad you all liked it. The sonatas and partitas are some of my favorite pieces by Bach, up there with his suites for unaccompanied cello. Here’s wiki on the partitas: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonatas_and_partitas_for_solo_violin_(Bach) One of my favorite recordings was by Nathan Milstein. Here he is doing the chaconne from number 2: http://youtu.be/l75X-SDKq1Y
