Isabelle Faust plays Bach's Sonata No. 3 and Partita No. 2 for Solo Violin From St. Thomas Church, Leipzig

About

Centuries after Bach’s death, in the church that now serves as his final resting place, Isabelle Faust pays an unforgettable tribute to the composer whose esteem among audiences, musicians, and scholars is probably unmatched by any other.

The acclaimed German violinist presents a deeply felt, flawlessly rendered performance of two monumental works from the Bach catalogue. Sonata No. 3 includes the longest and most intricate fugue ever written for solo violin, while the second Partita features the “Mount Everest” of violin repertoire: the concluding Chaconne, fifteen minutes of jaw-dropping virtuosity and heartrending emotion. These works, uniquely cherished in the classical canon, are unshakeable pillars in the legacy of the “father of music,” and in Faust’s capable hands, a heartfelt homage to his memory.
