Notes & Reviews:

Fenella Humphreys is equally as motivated as she is talented. Inspired by the solo violin music of J. S. Bach, she mixes in some of Britain's finest composing talents of today and the result is this new release, Bach 2 the Future. Fenella had long been performing Bach's solo violin music, but was frustrated with the lack of modern unaccompanied violin works. After a remarkable fundraising drive, Fenella was able to commission the works that appear on this release from Adrian Sutton, Peter Maxwell Davies, and Sally Beamish. Humphreys' previous recording garnered the following praises: "... Humphreys' performance of the Bach is among the finest on record... " (American Record Guide) "Humphreys' rises emphatically to their challenges." (The Guardian)
