Tononi Records - Benedict Cruft - Sonatas & Partias for Solo ViolinTononi Records - featuring Benedict Cruft - Sonatas & Partias for Solo Violin
Tononi Records is an independent Record Company which was formed in 2000. The first CD to be published is a 2CD album of J.S.Bach's Sonatas & Partias (sic, you will see why we have used Partia rather than Partita, if you visit the site) for solo violin played by Benedict Cruft. Cruft has been specialising in performing these six masterpieces as a set, over a pair of recitals since 1987 and recorded them in a six day period in the Autumn (fall) of 1998 in the glorious acoustics of the early Norman Binham Priory in Norfolk.

But Ernesto gives us much more, he puts a lot of himself into his interpretation. He is both technically skilled and exceptionally expressive." - Jan Hanford - the J.S. Bach Home Page
