Notes and Editorial Reviews

In writing his six Sonatas and Partitas, J.S. Bach places himself, right from the very title, under the invocation, the divine patronage of absence: 'Sei solo a violino senza basso accompagnato' - and this at the height of the reign, the dictatorship of the bass! 'Bâtir sur la pointe d'une aiguille', built on the point of a needle', Baudelaire would say a century later. one can write a bass by itself, as the Italians did, for it is pregnant with a thousand trebles, one need only let it give birth; but a melody without bass? Assuredly the idea is absurd. Bach did it. In writing his six Sonatas and Partitas, J.S.
