Notes & Reviews:

German Baroque poets produced works of astonishing quality that were essential to the intellectual climate in which Johann Sebastian Bach grew up. The purpose of this CD is to draw attention to the link between the associations and ideas that informed the poets of the baroque era and the music of J.S. Bach, and so inspire listeners to explore the interaction of music and text in greater depth. Featured works are two of the solo violin Partitas - some of the most eloquent music Bach wrote - played by Kolja Blacher. Completing the concept, Frank Arnold offers evocative poetry readings interspersed between movements.
