Notes & Reviews:

"The solo violin sonatas have been played and recorded on guitar many times over, but the Partitas are not that common. These are the artist's own arrangements, and sound natural, if one can divorce the sound of the originals from one's memory. I found the third Partita in E Major the most effective. If the monumental Chaconne of the second Partita sounds somewhat laboured, that is not the fault of the artist but rather the nature of the beast. Timo Korhonen certainly has the technique and musical instinct to bring off this tour de force. Bravo!" -Cliffs Classics, July 2010 "Korhonen's phrasing and articulation are intelligent and musical, and the execution is clean and crisp." -Gramophone, October 2010

International Record Review
Korhonen always adheres closely to Bach's concepts, so that the notes added to the original violin score, filling out the harmony and adding basses, are subtle and never harmonically jarring...He plays with the intensity of one who really knows these works...one feels his love and admiration for these pieces.
