One of the best recordings of this particular Partita!

Owe Lundgren said:

A very nice performance of the Bach Partita No3
but i think this recoring is worth buying just for the really great performance of Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasy

Rijko Ebens said:

The interpretation of the Bach Partita no3 by Vanessa-Mae is sheer joy. You can hear the fun and pleasure she is having playing and recording this music. Vanessa-Mae's plays fluently and with ease, as if she is inventing the music this very moment.
