PROGRAM NOTESIn the solo Sonatas and Partitas, J.S. Bach imposed upon an essentially melody instrument the tremendous task of complex polyphonic forms and constant juxtaposition of melodic and harmonic elements. The meticulous workings of fugues, the harmonic strength that holds the long melodies in such perfect equilibrium…this is the challenge the artist must match in the technical approach to performing them.
