Pristine 2003 Collection of Bach Concertos Available On Vinyl For The First Time!
When Hilary Hahn, one of today's greatest violinists, released her first CD with Deutsche Grammophon in 2003 it immediately became a big success, praised for the soloist's brilliance as well as for "the chamber-like interplay that produces a more ‘authentic' impression than many performances using period instruments" (Classics Today). Fifteen years and many accolades later these flawless J.S. Bach recordings (Violin Concertos in A minor, BWV 1041 and E major, BWV 1042, as well as the Concerto for two violins in D minor, BWV 1043 and the Concerto for violin and oboe in C minor, BWV 1060) with conductor Jeffrey Kahane and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra will now finally be available on 180g vinyl for the first time!
"Sometimes I'm asked, "What sets Bach apart from other great composers?" It's a difficult question to answer. There are so many details that one could point to, yet, like the famous Mona Lisa's smile, the most distinctive elements are the most elusive. Some people emphasize that Bach's music captures the essence of humanity, that it brings together complex elements of light and shadow, solitude and communion, elation and the depths of sorrow. The listener is led through conflict to beautiful resolution, but satisfying as the resolution may be, another layer of expression is constantly waiting to be uncovered. I feel that this is true of all of Bach's compositions." - Hilary Hahn
