Towards a Performance History of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin: Preliminary Investigations
Dorottya Fbin (The University of New South Wales)

The paper examines the recorded history of performing Bach’s Solos for unaccompanied violin (BWV 1001-1006). Starting with an overview of the early reception and performance history of the works, it continues with a brief account of editions and a summary of the various interpretative approaches one can observe in the more than forty available recordings issued between 1903 and 2002. This is followed by a more detailed examination of various aspects of performance such as vibrato, portamento, bowing, rhythmic projection, articulation and ornamentation. Placing these trends in their historical context, the study also summarizes typical aesthetic notions and shows how various audio- and performance analysis tools and methods may help to account for these features. The results are interpreted in terms of how historically informed approaches are distinguishable from mainstreamperformance styles and how these interact. The findings contradict some general opinion regarding trends in tempo choices and provide evidence for a discussion of how violin playing and Bach interpretation have changed over the last 100 years.
