Canadian violinist James Ehnes is no longer "an exciting young talent" but an international star. He plays regularly with the world's leading orchestras and conductors and his recordings invariably receive the highest praise. One of his most recent recordings in which he plays both Bartok Violin Concertos and the Viola Concerto (Chandos 10690) has had rave reviews.
In this video Ehnes plays Bach's Preludio and Gigue from Bach's Partita No. 3 for Unaccompanied Violin. The performance was recorded in the studios of radio station WQXR in New York.
