Christine Busch
Partita voor viool solo nr 2 in d, BWV1004 Johann Sebastian Bach
violin Christine Busch
Blue hall
Violinist Christine Busch plays this impressive Second Partita for violin by Johann Sebastian Bach; a solo piece that enjoys little company. He wrote what can only be described as an absolute masterpiece during his stay at the court of Köthen. It is a highpoint in the genre and tests the artistic skills of the musician. It is pure musical meditation, virtuosic and intimate at the same time. Bach himself was an outstanding violinist and most probably wrote the partita for the well-known virtuoso violinist Johann Georg Pisendel.
As regards complexity and the technique of variation, in the extensive chaconne of the partita, Bach increases the complexity of his writing for violin in a way that had not been done before. The chaconne is a masterpiece in itself, an impressive clincher to a piece that consists of four traditional dance movements from a French suite: allemande, courante, sarabande and a gigue.
