about this recording:
Helen Chang, violinist, joined the Minnesota Orchestra violin section in the fall of 2003. Formerly associate and principal second violinist of the Bamberg Symphony in Germany, Chang has toured with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and played with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s. She also served on the faculty of Jeunnesses Musicales World Orchestra where she taught orchestral training and chamber music to international students.

There is not much about this recording which I would like to put in words; the music really speaks for itself. One thing for sure is that these Partitas are not my only one interpretation written in stone, merely a stage of life in which a human being shares through music. That is the beauty of art, which can be created in so many ways at so many different times.
