Notes & Reviews:

Baroque violinist Rüdiger Lotter has established himself within a few years as one of the leading and most versatile representatives of his field. The Herald Tribune calls him "a most highly cultivated representative of Early Music". This is his sixth release with Oehms Classics.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Rudiger Lotter's playing is of the PPP school. While many performers have found the rhythmic freedom introduced by the PPP movement liberating and invigorating. The valuable thing about this release, however, is the violinist's booklet notes. Indeed, Bach may have composed this music for himself to play. He owned a violin made by Jacob Stainer, the greatest of the German-Austrian school of violin makers. Lotter also calls attention to another peculiarity of the manuscript. Lotter remarks on the religious significance of the number: there are 22 books in the Hebrew Bible, the Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, etc.
