Notes and Editorial Reviews

Shlomo Mintz. Originally issued on DG 413810 [3 CDs]. Reissued on DG 445526 [2 CDs]

Mintz’s recording, released in 1984, offers the set on three discs rather than two, each disc pairing a sonata with a partita. These are commanding accounts, showing exceptional musicality and depth, and lacking, if anything, just a touch of lightness and variety of color. The control of tone, amplitude, and intonation, is extraordinary, yet the approach is never showy or self-conscious. Judging from differences in ambience and image, the readings may have been recorded at several different sessions, though the takes are nicely fared in to the final mix. The recording has striking presence and immediacy. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR
