It will be interesting to hear this. KJ has an affinity for Bach, which was clear from his original 1988 WTC book 1 release.
He has also accompanied other musicians in Bach (e.g. played harpsichord with Michela Petri playing flute sonatas arranged for recorder, on the RCA label, 1992) and has shown himself to be a sympathetic accompanist who can generate real synergy with the soloist.
I don’t know anything about the violinist, Michelle Makarski, but on the ECM website she is listed on several releases
(shortened link: http://bit.ly/13Z2hQS )
including KJ’s 1993 recording ‘Bridge of Light’ and 3 CDs under her own name, so she looks promising.
As far as I know (without doing some research) KJ hasn’t recorded any Bach for a long time, so it will be interesting to see if his approach has changed.
I’ll definitely be looking out for this release.
