Notes & Reviews:

Ulla Bundies and Taiji Takata play the Violin Sonatas BWV 1014 - 1019, one of Johann Sebastian Bach's most important instrumental cycles for small ensemble. Just how important these Sonatas were to Bach himself can be seen from the decade-long reworkings of the individual pieces. Simultaneously, they represent a milestone in musical history, for it was in them that J.S. Bach liberated the keyboard instrument from the role of the basso continuo, and placed it as an equal partner alongside the violin. He even went further, developing a trio sonata for two instruments, with the harpsichord uniting two chamber music parts, one in the right hand and one in the left, to which to the violin part is added. The earliest preserved manuscript copy of the Sonatas dates from 1725. Alongside their interpretation, the musicians have delved into the entirely personal context of the creation of the works and cast a glance into the soul of the human being Johann Sebastian Bach, whom one can perceive in every moment of this recording. With Ulla Bundies (b 1959) and Taiji Takata (b 1977), two generations of the early music scene, which is long since globally networked, have come together and mutually stimulated one another. Ulla Bundies has already received numerous prizes, including the ECHO Klassik, a ranking on the "List of the Best" of the German Record Critics' Award, and the Cannes Classical Award.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
These are some of the more spirited performances of these sonatas that I have heard. Tempos are well chosen, and balances are good. Ulla Bundies enjoys the music so much that her enthusiasm is often palpable, and I got caught up in it. Bundies and Taiji Takata are a good team, with obvious sympathy. Bundies plays a violin made by Camillo Camilli in 1734.
