The young Dutch vi­o­lin­ist Ja­nine Jansen has cho­sen a most un­usual cou­pling for her record­ing of Bach’s Par­tita in D mi­nor. She’s of­fer­ing string ar­range­ments of the Twoand Three-Part In­ven­tions for key­board. Her play­ing of the Par­tita, with its fa­mous Cha­conne, is lithe, out­go­ing, and tech­ni­cally im­pres­sive. And the part­ner­ship with Rysanov and Thedéen in the two sets of In­ven­tions is light and deft. But the spe­cial magic that at­taches to Dmitry Sitkovet­sky’s string trio ar­range­ment of the Gold­berg Vari­a­tions is sim­ply not avail­able from the mu­sic it­self. www.dec­ca­clas­sics.com
