BACH Andante from Sonata for Solo Violin No.2 in A minor
Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin represent the ultimate challenge for any violinist. Not only are they extremely technically challenging, but they make great demands on the performer in terms of interpretation and expression. Richard Tognetti has a close affinity with these works, and his recordings of Bach have won three consecutive ARIA awards.
