J. S. Bach: Unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas for Violin


Ruggiero Ricci (violin)

UKCD 2053/4 – 053068205320


Ricci’s reading of Bach’s solo violin works is stylised but compelling nonetheless. His integrity in releasing unedited performances makes the package all the more intriguing.

    ‘Ricci gives good, old-fashioned readings… the tone is romantically ripe and full, but the expressive style is not exaggerated…. Excellent recording.’
