    I finally found a recording I am enjoying as much as the Milstein.
    Podger has captivated me.
    When all else fails, listen to Thick as a Brick.

    liking it quite a lot.

    Me too but I got the newer Tetzlaff Ondine label version......

    Also this thread got me into new Gidon Kremer version, love his more flamboyant personal style, perhaps more Kremer than Bach but me like.......ha ha

    Those who like Holloway, Mullova on Onyx, Armandine Beyer, Tognetti, Christine Busch and other period recordings with a "clean" sound I recommend going to www.spotify.com to hear Gottfried von der Goltz's brand new recording:

    Available on cd from amazon.com in October:

    About 20 years ago, after listening to a number of more highly acclaimed recordings, I ended up buying Sandor Vegh on Auvidis from 1971. The acoustic is pretty dry, and he sounds very closely mic’d. So there’s an immediacy and detail to the sound that pulls me in. There’s also an intimacy. Almost like you were standing in a violin shop when Sandor Vegh walks in, is handed a Strad to try, and begins playing 3 feet away. His playing is nuanced and he produces many varied colors. He goes from whisper quiet to almost violently attacking the strings in a way that can create an almost ugly sound. Out of curiosity I just did an internet search for reviews. Classics Today disliked it. And Gramophone truly hated it. Mainly his technique and intonation. Personally, I find there’s something about his phrasing and musical approach in general that’s very involving. It’s like he’s having a conversation with himself. And talking to me, the listener, at the same time. I haven’t heard that many recordings of it, and while he doesn’t have the polish of those other players, none of those other performances affects me emotionally like he does. Love it or hate it, he isn’t at all mechanical. Just my opinion.
