Solo performances of J.S. Bach Partitas and Sonatas from violinist Nathan Milstein.
"Milsteins interpretation of these difficult works is at once brilliant and satisfying... It depends rather on what you imagine to be the ideal surroundings for a performance: a public recital or your own room. The music itself seems to me capable of supporting both interpretations, for it combines the rhetoric of extreme technical difficulty with a richness of detail that seems to call for more intimacy than a recital-hall can give us... For Milstein the technical difficulties hardly seem to exist, or rather, exist only as a stimulus to bravura... exceptionally distinguished presentation of music that is not nearly as austere as its reputation might suggest..." - Gramophone
