2 in A minor BWV 1003. 2 in D minor BWV 1004. The former was recorded in December 1956 and the latter in March 1954. 3 for Solo Violin in C Major BWV 1005.3 for Solo Violin in E Major BWV 1006. The former was recorded in May 1956 and the latter in December 1955. All sessions held in the warm acoustics of. Street Studios, New York City. Milstein's unfailingly beautiful tone and purity of intonation is allied to a supreme sense of architecture and a penetrating imagination. Even if you have another favorite set, there are so many felicitous touches and moments of insight throughout Milstein's cycle that it stands as one of the most majestic and highly individual accounts ever recorded a landmark in these works' discographies. Moreover, he is afforded warm and vivid sound. Great violinists have always been drawn to the partitas and sonatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, many of them recording the works several times in their careers. Jascha Heifitz, Yehudi Menuhin, and Nathan Milstein have all essayed the Bach partitas throughout their illustrious careers. It's no wonder this music attracts musicians; it's filled with deep emotion, technical brilliance and boundless invention.
Bach composed the works in 1720 at the age of 35, when he had assimilated the energetic Italian style of Vivaldi and the elegant French dance forms of Couperin. The partitas represent the pinnacle of solo music for the instrument. This recording by Milstein was produced from sessions that took place in the 1950s.Milstein's Bach is not for early-music purists or those who prefer an analytical approach to the music. Milstein plays with passion and stunning virtuosity. His double stopping in the "Preludio" to the Partita No. 3 is glorious and a high point of the disc. Milstein was very much the poet, and the profundity he brings to the famous "Chaconne" in the Partita No.
The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor. The condition of the box is near-MINT. Really, there are no flaws to speak of and the box appears virtually as new. There are no corner breaks, splits, owners' markings or other defects, and the box remains perfectly solid, bright, glossy, and highly attractive.
There are 2 small tears to the shrink wrap, both on the rear side of the box, one the size of a quarter (about 2 cm in diameter), the other the size of a dime (about 1 cm in diameter). As was the custom at the time, the booklet was sealed under the shrink wrap to the back of the box. Where the two small tears (openings) are, the booklet is discolored. It also was not perfectly aligned with the back of the box, causing one edge to be slightly curled over the leading edge of the box.Otherwise, it is fine and the booklet rates as EX vs. The condition of the 3 LPs is MINT these are factory-sealed, unplayed copies the ideal collector's copies. All LPs are provided with a new Nagaoka (or Nagaoka-style) inner sleeve. FEEDBACK: I will promptly leave feedback for all buyers.
