Notes & Reviews:

James Ehnes, named 2002 Young Artist of the Year at the Cannes Classical Awards, has established a career of distinction. Luc Beausejour has been widely praised for his masterful and sparkling performances. They come together on this recording to give a commanding performance of four of Bach's sonatas for violin and harpsichord.

Born in 1976, James Ehnes has established an international career of rare distinction. Bach's Sonatas for Violin and Harpsichord were the first sonatas to take the harpsichord beyond from its role as a simple accompanying instrument and give it a central position in the music. Up until these works, such sonatas would be scored for violin and basso continuo - where the harpsichord and a cello would play "background music" to highlight the violin's central part. Here, however, the harpsichord is specified and given a true instrumental role.
