Info for J.S. Bach: Sonatas & Partitas for Solo Violin



The Sonatas and Partitas, BWV 1001–1006, by Johann Sebastian Bach are compositions written for solo violin in accordance with Bach's headings in the autograph manuscript. The set consists of three sonatas (da chiesa), in four movements, and three partitas (or partias), in dance-form movements. The 2nd Partita is widely known for its Chaconne considered one of the most masterly and expressive works ever written for solo violin.

The set was completed by Bach in 1720 but not published until 1802 (by Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn). Even after its publication, the work was largely ignored until the celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim performed it. Today, Bach's Sonatas and Partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire, and they are frequently performed and recorded.

The Sei Solo a Violino senza Basso accompagnato (Six Solos for Violin Without Bass Accompaniment), as Bach titled them, firmly established the technical capability of the violin as a solo instrument. The pieces often served as archetypes for solo violin pieces by later generations of composers, including Eugene Ysaÿe and Bela Bartok.

Alberto Bologni studied with Sandro Materassi at the Florence Conservatory graduating with full marks and honors. Later he deepened his studies with Stefan Gheorghiu and Ilja Grubert earning his soloist diploma at the Rotterdam Conservatory; and with Piero Farulli at the Chigiana Academy of Siena and at the Fiesole School of Music. Alberto was awarded at the Viotti di Vercelli and Spohr competitions in Freiburg. He holds the chair of violin at the Institution of High Culture "Luigi Boccherini" in Lucca.

This recording, made inside the Pieve di Sant'Eusebio, an historical church in Bassano del Grappa, was captured by the producer, Alessandro Simonetto, with a pair of Bruel & Kjaer microphones of the 80s.

Alberto Bologni, violin



Alberto Bologni
graduated with honors from the Conservatory of Florence “Luigi Cherubini” and proceeded to obtain a soloist diploma at the Conservatory of Rotterdam. He owes his training to the contribution of some of the most celebrated violinists of the European tradition: Sandro Materassi, who was the go between with the Venetian school of Giulio Pasquali; and the German-Hungarian school transmitted by Jeno Hubay; while Stephan Gheorghiu and Ilya Grubert provided him with the teachings of the Russian-Soviet school of Oistrack and Kogan. Passionate about art, cinema and literature, his intellectual curiosity has made him one of the most versatile violinists of his generation. Alberto Bologni confronts a solo and chamber music repertoire that combines the best known rarities and rediscoveries, as well as, a large series of compositions by contemporary authors, often dedicated to him or commissioned by him, regularly performing in major Italian and European centers. Author of the theatrical dialogue “Goldoni and Haydn or the art of conversation”, he also composed the cadences for violin concerts by Mozart, Haydn, Viotti (n.22) and Paganini (n.1). His recordings have been much appreciated by the specialized Italian and English press. He plays a Santo Serafino, 1734, formerly played by Cesare Ferraresi.
