Welcome to "For the Record," Violinist.com's weekly roundup of new releases of recordings by violinists, violists, cellists and other classical musicians. We hope it helps you keep track of your favorite artists, as well as find some new ones to add to your listening!
This recording featuring Isabelle Faust and Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin explores works by Johann Sebastian Bach that were, in one form or another, originally written or conceived as violin showpieces. Along with the famous Violin Concertos BWV 1041-43, a selection of overtures, trio sonatas, and concertos now associated with other instruments, are performed here on violin as the composer intended. These works serve as a reminder that the author of "The Well-Tempered Clavier" was also a virtuoso violinist. BELOW: Excerpts of Faust working with Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
