Usually ships within 1-3 days
here presents his newest project for BIS: a disc combining two partitas by J.S. Bach with two works by Eugene Ysaye and Lera Auerbach.
The Partita No.2
was described as 'one of the most wonderful, most incomprehensible pieces of music' by Brahms, and is followed on the disc by Auerbach's par.ti.ta
, composed specifically for Vadim Gluzman.
In Ysaye's Sonata in A minor
the parallels with the Partita No.3
are very strong. It was composed in 1924 as the second of a set of six, each sonata dedicated to a fellow violin virtuoso, and although the affinity is obvious, he incorporates elements wholly alien to Bach.
Vadim Gluzman's previous discs on BIS have ranged from solo works and chamber music by Lera Auerbach, Arvo Part and Alfred Schnittke, to the great violin concertos by Bruch and Tchaikovsky.
