Bach Solo Violin Sonatas and Partitas

5:41 pm music

I got the recording by Sigiswald Kuijken and have been listening to it. It sounds really weird at first because I think it’s supposed to be more of an “authentic” performance. The strings are probably gut or something, and it has a very dead sort of sound. Dead as in, the quality of tone coming from the strings; it doesn’t have the strength of modern silver or steel strings or whatever. But it sounds very beautiful, and I’m enjoying this recording a lot.
