Michael Weeks Very beautiful. I think your interpretation is more like Bach himself would have played the piece. Rather than strive for some sort of artificial rhythmic precision in the ornamentation, I think he would have been more attuned to the European folk traditions of the day. Oddly enough, I think you are taking us back to the roots of much of the music.
Paul Lindenauer Great version Mark. You are updating, revising and reaching a new audience on every level. Here is an old recording on Baroque violin by Lucy van Dael that may be a more appropriate comparison. http://youtu.be/H_1CDmGAY-g
Paul Lindenauer, that is simply amazing in the uncanny similarity. I promise, I did not listen to this or any baroque performance of the Allemande! I simply came up with my rendition from scratch. There are things in the tempo and accelerations as well as pacing and articulation that are nearly identical... wow... I am stunned... I did not study baroque music... I simply went by the notes of Bach with no bowings as I left his out because I treated them as phrase markings and I didn't need phrase markings to create my bowings, just the notes on the page. I did it as a composer-violinist. I am kind of blown away right now... MOC
