About This Item

Rachel Barton Pine's edition of this monumental work, the Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin, is sure to become an instant classic. Carefully edited by Ms. Pine, arguably the world's leading exponent in the performance of these works, this new edition is a major addition to the repertoire, for both performers and teachers. Includes pages of introduction and notes, as well as supplemental materials via digital download.

Pine has made a lifelong study of Bach and his manuscript of the Six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, examining the masterpieces themselves as well as the social, musical and historical context in which they were written. She has researched the composers Bach admired and given numerous historically-informed performances of 17th and 18th Century music from Germany, France and Italy which served as a direct influence on his compositions.

Pine's edition is designed to be used with either a baroque or modern bow, though Pine strongly encourages use of the former, even on modern violin. Pine first started studying the unaccompanied works of Bach at age eight, and since age 14, has been using a baroque bow for unaccompanied Bach.

While the bowings and fingering in previous Bach editions, such as the popular version edited by Ivan Galamian, don't translate well to a baroque bow, Pine's historically-informed bowings and fingerings are perfectly compatible with a baroque bow on a modern or baroque violin, and will also work with a modern bow. The addition of dynamics and phrasing indications provide nuanced layers of information for those who are not as familiar with baroque interpretation and wish to learn more.
