    Thumbs up

    To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the world famous International Menuhin Music Academy, Dinemec Classics have released a brand new Double CD of the complete set of Bach partitas and sonatas for solo violin. Masterfully performed by Bogdan Zvoristeanu, an alumni student and now teacher at the Academy, as well as first soloist of the world renowned Orchestre de Chambre de Genève. Considered as the summit of violin literature and deemed the toughest body of work to perform, ‘The Three Sonatas and Three Partitas for Violin without accompanied bass’ have not been recorded in a complete set since Yehudi Menuhin in the mid 1930’s. So considering the occasion it is appropriate to pay these ‘divinely woven’ sounds yet another visit.
    Bogdan has played as a soloist under the direction of Yehudi Menuhin, Andrey Boreyko, Pinchas Steinberg, Marek Janowski, Jin Wang, Fabio Luisi and Gilbert Varga. He also collaborated with great musicians like Alberto Lysy, Jeremy Menuhin, Bruno Pasquier, Brigitte Meyer, Liviu Prunaru, Emil Rovner, José Gallard, Stanimir Todorov and Ettore Causa.

    Over the years, the artistic value of Bogdan Zvoristeanu has become recognised worldwide, his musical stature has been confirmed by numerous prizes and awards in international competitions like: “Tibor Varga” in Sion, “Leopold Mozart” in Augsburg, “George Enescu” in Bucharest, the “Geneva International Violin Competition”, “Pierre Lantier” in Paris and many others. His achievements continue to grow as his magnificent career flourishes.

    Bogdan Zvoristeanu plays a violin made by Nicolaus Gagliano which dates from 1761; its rich sound is captured perfectly on this double album. Recorded using 24 bit high resolution technology in the world renowned Dinemec Studio One Auditorium, the listener is guaranteed an awe inspiring audio experience.

    This Release is available on all major digital platforms: 24/7, 7 Digital, All Digital Download, All Music Guide, Altacom, Amazon Digital Services Inc., Blue Pie, Comcor, Dada , deezer, eMusic, FNAC Direct, GBox, Gracenote, Groove Mobile, HOODINY, Inprodicon, iTunes, lala media, Last.fm, Limewire, MediaNet, Spiral Frog, Mufin, Musiwave, Myspace, Myxer, Napster, New Sound, one italia, Pure Tracks, Real/ Rhapsody, Ruckus, Secury Cast, Shazam, Sony DADC, Spotify, Starzik, Telefonica, Telus, uplaya, Verisign, Verizon, Virgin FR, WE7, Xpointo Media

    Agreed with YsayeOp.27#6. I'm pretty sure these have been recorded a significant number of times since 1930. Milstein, Szeryng, and Grumiaux are just a few examples. I'm not sure Dinemeclassic is overly familiar with these magnificent works.

    I'm sure he is. But "he" is in fact a record company, here publishing lies just to promote their sales.
