Benjamin Schmid

After more than 30 years of intensive interest in J.S. Bach’s original works for violin, it was high time for Benjamin Schmid to improvise on Bach. He has done this with three movements from the Partita in E major BWV 1006, which F. Kreisler already arranged for his own purposes. An improvised solo part on Bach’s C-sharp Adagio can be found, as can Schmid’s own composition following Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber or the Andante in C major BWV 1003. But there are also polytonal expansions on the Prelude in C major, then ending in the jazz standard All the things you are, which goes through almost all the keys.
