Particularly when it comes to J.S. Bach’s incomparable solo works, the Hungarian violinist Kristóf Baráti has established himself as one of the foremost interpreters of his generation. This complete set of the six Sonatas and Partitas, performed in full at the 2016 Verbier Festival, marks his first live recording of the cycle. Baráti’s performance balances dazzling virtuosity with solemn reflection. Feeding off the energy of the audience, and vectoring Bach’s profoundly sacred writing within the Eglise de Verbier, a deeply moving account of these masterpieces is rendered.
