“I have to tell you that I did this recording for myself … and although of course I'm very critical of my own playing, I am also partially very proud of the result …” the 31-year-old has told The Violin Channel.
“I feel that every performer to date, including myself, has only ever been able to capture a part of Bach’s greatness … I don’t quite think there is any violinist as yet who’s been able to capture Bach in all possible aspects perfectly, like say what Glenn Gould did on the piano …” the Zurich, Luzern and Munich University of Music graduate has said.
“My own approach to these Bach masterworks focused on a search for balance in all possible aspects … but still my search for the perfect Bach will go on ... ” he has said.
"BWV 1001-1003 will follow next year," he has indicated.
