Notes & Reviews:

Mr. Ehnes’s 2001 Analekta recording French Showpieces with l’Orchestre symphonique de Québec under the direction of Yoav Talmi earned high praise as did Prokofiev’s Two Sonatas and Five Melodies with pianist Wendy Chen. 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.
