Notes & Reviews:

To the vocal lines of arias and duets, Bach composed gorgeous violin passages. In 'Bach: Violin & Voice", Hilary Hahn records these passages exquisitely sharing this album with soprano Christine Schafer and baritone Matthias Georne, both renowned Bach exponents. In truth, this album features not two but three singers - the magical tone from Hahn's Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume conveys a beauty which can be attributed to a golden voice.

To the vocal lines of arias and duets, Bach composed gorgeous violin obbligati. In this novel album, Hilary Hahn records these obbligati exclusively - an act of devotion no other virtuoso violinist has ever committed to disc. Sharing this album with Hahn are soprano Christine Sch fer and baritone Matthias Goerne, both also renowned Bach exponents. Numbers from such masterpieces as the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor are rendered with an unearthly beauty and a reverence that add to this recording's historical significance. In truth, this album features not two but three singers - Hahn elicits from her Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume tone as sung by a golden voice.
