Johann Sebastian Bach: Sonata for solo violin No. 3 in C major, BWV 1005; Partiata for solo violin No. 3 in E major, BWV 1006 - Ruth Palmer (v)
It was Ruth Palmer’s wish to couple Bach’s Sonata in C major with nothing but the Partita in E major. A perfect length for an LP, but too short for a CD. That was when the idea was born to produce this programme as a purely analogue Direct-to-Disc recording. Ruth Palmer’s Bach recordings are like an excursion on many levels. They testify to power, a lust for life and a deep understanding and engagement with Bach. With over 27 minutes playing time on the A-side, we have here what is probably one of the longest Direct-to-Disc LPs in recording history.
Recording: April and June 2018 at Meistersaal of Emil Berliner Studios, Berlin, by Philip Krause and Lukas KowalskiProduction: Rainer Maillard & Stephan Flock
