Description

On playing Bach… By listening to Bach first thing in the morning I’m very likely to start the day in good spirits; the clarity of the music both having an invigorating and calming effect on me. Every note and expression has its rightful place and nothing ever seems too elaborate or deprived of something or too intense. The music flows with a confidence that balances our intellectual, emotional and spiritual interests. PLAYING Bach – especially his solo violin music – intensifies this experience. I now have the chance to get to know the music from inside itself. I have to be prepared to immerse myself in the language of it, understand its complexity, search for the meaning in every phrase….and finally come out the other end with something clear and beautiful…a recipe which works well for me and which developed during the past years of playing and practising these masterworks…..

Press reviews

Volkskrant

(…) buitengewoon fraai, loepzuiver non-vibrato-spel (…) (…) Podger legt met haar elegante spel de substielste nuances van de muziek bloot. Het resultaat is van een tijdloze schoonheid. Volkskrant

Gramophone

(…) Altogether a most impressive and rewarding disc.

Hessische/Niedersächsische Allgemeine

(…) Rachel Podger ërklart: “versucht man, ein Gleichgewicht zwischen drei dingen zu finden: der notierte Musik, dem instrument uns sich selbst”. Das hat sie gefunden in dieser formvollendeten, Feuer sprühenden, technisch ausgefeilten, tief lotenden Einspielung.

Luister

(…) vioolspel op het allerhoogste niveau (…) (…) een uitzonderlijke kwaliteit die de aandacht verdient in het Bachjaar 2000 (…)

Amazon.com

(…) Podger’s infectious charm and unaffected musicianship are hard to resist. BBC Music Magazine (…) a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Klassieke Zaken

(…) Vederlicht en speels, zodra het kan, introvert, bezonnen, ongehaast ook, maar zo vitaal dat er van saaiheid geen sprake is. Zij munt uit in een vlekkeloze intonatie en perfecte beheersing van de dubbelgrepen. (…)

Vida, Oregon

(…) Sonics are absolute superb (…) (…) We will be hearing a lot more from and about this dramatically talented young Englishwoman.

Alte Musik Aktuell

Das ist fein ziseliert, ausgesprochen musikalisch und technisch hervorragend. Dazu gesellt such jedoch auch eine große Portion Fortune und Esprit – und so entstand eine wirklich ganz bemerkenswerte Einspielung von sehr anspruchsvollen Werken.
