Lean, lithe, and lovely, this recording of Bach 's two solo violin concertos plus his double violin concerto played by French violinist Zino Francescatti will warm the hearts of those who miss straightforward, modern instrument performances of these standard repertoire works.
Although of Italian extraction, Francescatti is clearly a French player: his tone is lean, clean, and direct; his technique is lithe, subtle, and strong; and his interpretations are sweet, tender, and lovely. Plus, the accompaniment by the Lucerne Festival Strings led by Rudolf Baumgartner only makes things sweeter with a just this side of wet tone, just this side of sugary phrasing, and just the other side of cloying textures. Still, for listeners looking for a superbly played modern instrument performance of these popular pieces, this Francescatti disc will serve admirably.
