Amandine Beyer


“In the Partitas, a number of individual movements stand out: the B minor Allemande and its Double for the way in which Beyer allows the music to breathe, and the Corrente, where her bow conjures up swarms of butterflies fluttering and soaring through the air; the questioning, philosophic D minor Sarabande and that Chaconne, in which she sustains a deeply attractive sense of delicacy throughout; and the E major Loure – so danceable and beautifully ornamented in the repeats.”
– Gramophone

The three violin partitas, along with three sonatas Sei solo a violino senza basso accompagnato, form a collection of virtuoso works for the unaccompanied violin. Just as in the cello suites, Bach creates the illusion of multiple-voice counterpoint in these partitas. He probably composed them during his years in Köthen, reusing material from his Weimar period. It is unclear who exactly was supposed to play the ferociously difficult violin solos. They were not published until 1802, and it would be many years before they became part of the core repertoire for violinists. The chaconne from the second partita is considered one of the most expressive pieces for violin solo in the Baroque.
