Distinguished Swiss baroque violinist Maya Homburger performs J S Bach's Sonata No 2 in A minor and Partita No 2 in D minor, with its famous Chaconne, together with 'Aglais', an ethereal piece by English musician Barry Guy inspired by the butterfly of the same name on the second of three imaginative solo recordings on her own label coupling pieces by these composers.

This is the second of three imaginative recordings by baroque violinist Maya Homburger each featuring one of Bach's solos violin sonatas, one of his partitas and a solo piece written especially for her by Barry Guy. 'Inachis', 'Aglais' and 'Lysandra' are the titles of Guy's compositions which are interpolated between Bach's Sonatas and Partitas on the 3-CD project. They are all named after butterflies which for Homburger "represent the ultimate symbol for the mysteries and spirituality in nature, for colour, lightness of touch, intensity".

In the booklet essay Elisabeth Binder writes not about J S Bach and his famous music (on this CD these pinnacles of virtuoso solo violin literature are represented by his Sonata No 2 and Partita No 2) but on nature, depicted by one of the world's greatest artists Albrecht Dürer in his painting "Das grosse Rasenstück".

Personnel: Maya Homburger (baroque violin)
