“Every moment of Itzhak Perlman’s 1988 Bach Sonatas and Partitas cycle constitutes sweetly singing, tonally generous, and technically irreproachable violin playing. His supreme bow control, for example, allows him to sustain unusually broad tempos in the D minor partita’s Chaconne and the C major sonata’s opening Adagio, while quicker movements burst forth with effortless, shimmering joy,” writes Jed Distler for ClasssicToday.Com
“Technically he (Itzhak Perlman) is beyond reproach; chords are traversed deftly—and in the Adagio of Sonata No. 3 skillfully subjugated to the melodic line, and his differentiation between marked pianos and fortes is very clear,” writes Gramophone.
