Johann Sebastian Bach
Six Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard

Michelle Makarski: violin
Keith Jarrett: piano

Sonate b-Moll, BWV 1014
Sonate A-Dur, BWV 1015
Sonate E-Dur, BWV 1016
Sonate c-Moll, BWV 1017
Sonate f-Moll, BWV 1018
Sonate G-Dur, BWV 1019

Michelle Makarski and Keith Jarrett met when Makarski was recording Jarrett's album Bridge of Light. A musical friendship was formed, and the two decided to get together to play these Bach sonatas just for fun. Later on, they decided to record the pieces, which took place in November 2010 at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York.

Reviews
The performance “ profoundly beautiful “ holds some surprises¦ One is a lack of embellishment “ those interpretive flourishes that many Baroque specialists automatically insert into the music “ despite the pianist's improvisational pedigree. That, combined with the remarkable sound that Ms. Makarski achieves with her instrument “ suggesting in some inexplicable way the soul of an ancient viol “ and the meticulousness of the rendering, makes for a unique listening experience¦ In its honest search for Bach's voice, the recording conveys both passion and tenderness.
