Notes & Reviews:

Viktoria Mullova's Bach recordings for Onyx have received worldwide praise. For this album, she once again teams up with harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone in a program that pairs the two famous solo Violin Concertos with two concertos arranged for violin. The Violin Concerto BWV1053 was arranged from the second harpsichord concerto and the Concerto for Violin & Harpsichord BWV1060 was arranged from the concerto for violin and oboe. Having worked together for many years, Mullova and Dantone sought a piece they could both play with orchestra, and this brilliant arrangement is the result. Performed here with the Accademia Bizantina, it is the perfect conclusion to a masterful Bach program.

The Guardian
To hear Mullova play Bach is, simply, one of the greatest things you can experience.

The Observer, 5th May 2013
Thrilling, robustly profiled accounts.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2013
Mullova plays the two solo concertos elegantly, with beautiful precision and, in the middle movement, considerable eloquence.

The Independent, 6th July 2013
Breezy tempi, scintillating details and muscular bowing in the allegros cede to slow movements of thoughtfully differentiated timbres.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
Mullova plays the glorious 'Siciliano' second movement beautifully, while tongue-in-cheek elaborations in the accompaniment lend a sense of uninhibited exuberance to the finale... The two orginal concertos match anything else on disc.

International Record Review, July/August 2013
The Violin Concertos in E major and A minor are served wonderfully. Both performances are transparent and light but always expressively engaging... Dantone's continuo in the first movement of the E major finds Mullova revealing a tremendous depth of feeling.
