Classical review: Bach: Violin Concertos, Mullova/Dantone/Acc. Bizantina (Onyx)


Viktoria Mullova continues her collaboration with harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone in this elegantly articulated recording with Accademia Bizantina.

Breezy tempi, scintillating details and muscular bowing in the allegros cede to slow movements of thoughtfully differentiated timbres: a veiled, dove-grey adagio in the E major concerto, a smoky Siciliano in the transcription of the harpsichord concerto in E and  a sweet, mournful andante in the A minor concerto.
