The recording presentation is intimate, like that of a small recital hall or large salon. She even pointed out that she could tell what specific strings the performer was using based on the color represented.
Certainly the best option for in-print editions available on vinyl.

Schirmer , No. Plate The sonatas each consist of four movements, in the typical slow-fast-slow-fast pattern of the sonata da chiesa. The first two movements of each sonata are a prelude and a fugue. The third slow movement is lyrical, while the final movement shares the similar musical structure as a typical binary suite movement. Unlike the sonatas, the partitas are of more unorthodox design. Although still making use of the usual baroque style of allemande , courante , sarabande , and gigue , with some omissions and the addition of galanteries , new elements were introduced into each partita to provide variety.
Aside from the surviving transcriptions BWV and , two different sources also indicate that Bach and his circle performed the Sonatas and Partitas on keyboard instruments, rather than on the violin. Though the key signature of the manuscript suggests D minor, such was a notational convention in the Baroque period, and therefore does not necessarily imply that the piece is in the Dorian mode.
The second movement, the fugue, would later be reworked for the organ in the Prelude and Fugue, BWV and the lute Fugue, BWV , with the latter being two bars longer than the violin version. Each movement is followed by a variation double in French. In the original manuscript, Bach marked 'Segue la Corrente' at the end of Allemanda.
The Chaconne, the last and most famous movement of the suite, was regarded as "the greatest structure for solo violin that exists" by Yehudi Menuhin.
The opening movement of the work introduced a peaceful, slow stacking up of notes, a technique once thought to be impossible on bowed instruments. The fugue is the most complex and extensive of the three, with the subject derived from the chorale Komm, heiliger Geist, Herre Gott. Bach employs many contrapuntal techniques, including a stretto , an inversion , as well as diverse examples of double counterpoint.
