Anyone admirer of Yehudi Menuhin must get this recording. If you want a fresh recording, get this instead of his earlier 1930s recording. Menuhin is as awe-inspiring as ever. He does not play as fast as Heifetz but still impresses the listener with a manageable speed. His playing is not as heavy as Nathan Milstein, which is ideal for those who do not favour a hard approach to Bach.
Of course, there is the ever-stunning Chaccone, played by an equally stunning maestro. When I hear this and read the extract from Menuhin's autobiography where he described playing the Chaccone admidst 'thunder and lightning' (played during his last lesson with Enesco), I feel Menuhin was not exaggerating - he was telling the truth.
Totally recomendable. Has won award from the French 'Diapason Historique'.
