Award-winning Canadian violinist James Ehnes returns to the greatest body of work for solo violin: Bach’s Six Sonatas and Partitas. After many years of performing these masterpieces, it was the lockdown in 2020 that led Ehnes to record the complete set at his home in Florida in the early hours of the morning. His interpretation of this music has changed over the years. He first recorded them in 2000, and now at the height of his powers, delivers performances of superb musicianship – sensitive and thoughtful, breath-taking technical prowess combined with great emotional power. Ehnes performs on the 1715 “ex-Marsick” Stradivarius violin.
