EDI Records is proud to present a truly breakthrough recording of two of the three partitas by J. S. Bach (1685-1750), originally for solo violin. J. S. Bach managed to complete all of what he termed Sei Solo a Violino senza Basso accompagnato in 1720, and he would be pleased at the form they have evolved into here. It is indeed fortunate the manuscript of these works was re-discovered in 1814 in St. Petersburg among a stack of old paper to be used as wrappings in a butter shop!
