Bach - 6 Sonatas and Partitas BWV 1001-1006 for Violin solo
(notated and annotated version)
An authoritative Urtext edition of Sonatas and Partitas BWV 1001-1006 for Violin solo by J. S. Bach, edited by Klaus Rönnau. Contains marked and unmarked violin parts with fingering and bowing by Wolfgang Schneiderhan. They consist of three sonatas da chiesa, in four movements, and three partitas, in dance-form movements. The set was completed by 1720, but was only published in 1802 by Nicolaus Simrock in Bonn. Even after publication, it was largely ignored until the celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim started performing these works. Today, Bach's Sonatas and Partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire, and they are frequently performed and recorded.
