The Violin Channel, in conjunction with our good friends at Warner Classics, is this week giving away five autographed copies of VC Artist Augustin Hadelich's newly-released "Bach Sonatas & Partitas" CD.

"The Six Sonatas and Partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach are among the most quintessential works written for the violin," Augustin told The Violin Channel.

"They are formidable tests of technical ability and stamina, but also of musical imagination and expressive range. Like most violinists, I studied and performed these works all my life, and yet they never cease to provide challenges, hope, and joy.

"Recording the complete Six Sonatas and Partitas has long been a dream of mine. In March 2020, the music world came to a standstill — the lockdown period, with its difficult emotions and feelings of uncertainty, was the perfect time to delve into Bach’s masterpieces and to undertake the enormous project of recording the whole set."

"Bach's music is suffused with emotion and exudes a life-affirming joy. His mastery of counterpoint can create the illusion that his music is scholarly and austere, that he was a severe man who never smiled - but it is not so! While he was too humble to write very much about himself, we know that he had 20 children, of which 10 survived to adulthood. This tells me is that he knew more joy in his life, and more loss, than most people ever do! We can hear an extraordinary yet humble human being talking to us through the centuries."

Entries close Tuesday, May 4th, 2021.
