Composed three centuries ago, Johann Sebastian Bach's set of six works for solo violin stands as one of the holy grails of the instrument's literature – perhaps the holiest. Now the great Austrian musician Thomas Zehetmair makes his own mark in the rich history of this music, revisiting the repertoire on period instruments.

Zehetmair is an extraordinary violinist and a consistently inquisitive and self-questioning artist. He has not only played the big concertos but has given close attention to chamber music and new repertory and has also found an extra calling as a conductor, channelling this varied experience into his return to the formidable cornerstone of Bach's solo masterpieces.
