'Testament' is Rachel Barton Pine's very personal homage to the music of J. S. Bach, on which she performs the composer's complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin in the acoustic of her hometown St. Pauls Church in Chicago, where she first heard and fell in love with Bach's music.
Best-selling violinist Rachel Barton Pine's relationship with the music of Bach runs deep. She first heard and fell in love with Bach's music in her hometown St. Pauls Church in Chicago, which had a stained glass window of the composer in the sanctuary. That church is where Rachel first played Bach's music, at the age of four, and where she returned to record Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas in its beautiful yet clear acoustic. Rachel says, "I'm so pleased to have recorded the Six Sonatas and Partitas in my favourite sound space for these works, the place that I consider to truly be my emotional home for playing them."

Rachel Barton Pine has often performed the Sonatas and Partitas of Johann Sebastian Bach in recital, but her 2016 release on Avie is her first studio recording of this essential masterwork for violinists. Using a Baroque bow on a modernized 1742 Guarneri de Gesù violin, Pine plays the Sonatas and Partitas with crisp accentuation, transparent voicing, and a warm tone, much as she does in her concert performances. Her interpretation, which is influenced by period practices but not limited by them, offers clear counterpoint in the sonatas and buoyant dance rhythms in the partitas, and there is little scratchiness in her stopped chords to disrupt the smoothness and transparency of her elegant lines. Pine's depth of feeling and expressive insights into the music keep it from seeming like dry, technical exercises, yet there is none of the overly rhetorical Romantic approach here, either, so this reading does justice to Bach's likely intentions while communicating emotion in a subtle and tasteful manner. Highly recommended. -- AllMusic Review by Blair Sanderson
