Notes & Reviews:

These sonatas belong to the lesser known and less often performed violin sonatas of Johann Sebastian Bach. All of these, with the exception of the F major 1022 were composed for solo violin with continued bass, giving the accompanist a great amount of freedom to embellish and improvise their part. The bass parts are written out, as well as the chord structure. Certain performance rules and stylistic approach are followed so that the music is realized as intended. It is not taken for granted, although it was certainly most common, that these works were to be performed on harpsichord or harpsichord and viola da gamba. Because we wished to come as near the listener as possible we chose to record the works complete, live in the studio. There are occasional clips here and there but we wanted to convey the overall feeling that we are sitting with you, here and now, playing. Since both Nisse and I improvise freely when we play, placing or removing ornaments as the moment dictates and in accordance with each other, this way of recording felt even more relevant. For us, for what we wanted to say and for the flow of the music. We hope you enjoy this different approach.
