Format: CD 

 After spending over a decade recording and producing albums of critically acclaimed groups, Brooklyn Rider and Silkroad Ensemble, Johnny Gandelsman is finally releasing his first solo album, choosing JS Bach's magnificent Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo as the perfect repertoire for this endeavor. Johnny's unique interpretation integrates his classical training with the work he has been doing with The Silkroad Ensemble and Brooklyn Rider over the last decade. Collaborating with improvisers, commissioning new works from a variety of composers (many of whom are performers,) working with ballet & modern dance companies, as well as working with traditional musicians outside of the Classical music genre - all of these experiences add deep and meaningful layers of connection and dimension to Bach's music. The Boston Globe praised Gandelsman's performance of Sonatas and Partitas for it's "genial freshness and unaffected sincerity". Lloyd Schwartz, describing the concert on NPR's Fresh Air, added, "I've heard some famous violinists attempt this epic feat, but none of them gripped me and delighted me as thoroughly as Gandelsman." Finally, the New York Times called the local performance, "mesmerizing... a memorable marathon". Self-produced by Gandelsman, this record will be a meaningful addition to the existing interpretations of music deeply personal to all violinists
