Notes & Reviews:

Renowned Japanese American violinist Midori follows up her Onyx Classics début with a recording of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin. These works have long been considered the Mount Everest of violin repertoire. Each one is a test of dexterity and emotional commitment. On this new recording, Midori returns to these challenging works giving us readings that reach a new plateau of performance and insight.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
The Japanese violinist Midori offers a conservative performance avoiding anything which would be construed as controversial. Her tempos are moderate, her vibrato well controlled and her intonation secure... the D minor Partita, with its great Chaconne, and the C major Sonata stand out for the lightly articulated and playful character of their dance movements.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2016
Thomas Sanderling's unhurried, solicitous conducting pays handsome long-term dividends ... The recording finds an effective balance between voices and instruments, and moments of stage-shifting noise and the occasional audible prompt are only minimally distracting.
