Hi all,
Paul Seydor refers in several reviews to a recording on Harmonia Mundi. It's Bach:Sonatas and Partitas for Unaccompanied Violin by Regis Pasquier...Anyone know the catalogue number for this album and where I could locate a copy?
Thanks,
Byron

Paul wrote to me and said he was going to take a look when he gets back to his office or something...so let's see :)

Re Pasquier Bach: when I get home I promise I'll post the catalogue number. I've checked many sites and can't find a hint of a use done. This was given me to me personally by Robina Young, who helped produce it: it's one of her proudest achievements, and she dreams yet of doing an SACD reissue (please, please, please, Robina): it's a glorious album with beautiful sonics.

Hey Paul,
You had a chance to take a look at that album yet?

A reissue would be nice. The 2008 HM catalog lists nine CDs with Pasquier as a participant—music by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Chausson, and Ravel. For a recent account of the solo Sonatas and Partitas by a younger artist in excellent m-c sound, I can recommend the remarkable Julia Fischer on a two-SACD PentaTone set.

Yeah, I am looking for a nice vinyl version...thanks though. I have also heard the Lara St. John is quite good...

If you have a taste for a French spin on romanticism, I highly recommend the two Harmonia Mundi CD's of Chausson by Pasquier, his brother Bruno, and pianist Pennetier:

Concert op. 21 (sextet for piano & strings)

Piano trio op. 3 & Piano quartet op. 30

They are analog recordings, 1979-1984.
