The Accompaniment in "Unaccompanied" Bach Summary

The Accompaniment in "Unaccompanied" Bach: Interpreting the Sonatas and Partitas for Violin by Stanley Ritchie

Known around the world for his advocacy of early historical performance and as a skilled violin performer and pedagogue, Stanley Ritchie has developed a technical guide to the interpretation and performance of J. S. Bach's enigmatic sonatas and partitas for solo violin. Unlike typical Baroque compositions, Bach's six solos are uniquely free of accompaniment. To add depth and texture to the pieces, Bach incorporated various techniques to bring out a multitude of voices from four strings and one bow, including arpeggios across strings, multiple stopping, opposing tonal ranges, and deft bowing. Published in 1802, over 80 years after its completion in 1720, Bach's manuscript is without expression marks, leaving the performer to freely interpret the dynamics, fingering, bowings, and articulations. Marshaling a lifetime of experience, Stanley Ritchie provides violinists with deep insights into the interpretation and technicalities at the heart of these challenging pieces.

The Accompaniment in "Unaccompanied" Bach Reviews

Superb! Very inspired material eloquently written. Stanley Ritchie explains each movement of Bach's solo violin Sonatas and Partitas with such clarity and understanding in the thought process without being in any way 'dry'.

* Stringendo AUSTA *

For any violinist, this book is a practical delight. It deserves to join the great works by Leopold Mozart, Editha Knocker, Leopold Auer, Pierre Baillot, Joseph Szigeti, and their peers, which are on every serious player's shelf.
