If it's baroque - fix it


Just listen to Berta Joncus surveying recordings of Bach's Partitas for Solo Violin on BBC Radio 3's Record Review (until Oct 25 on i-Player) for a perfect example of an intermediary totally destroying any connection between the music and the listener. Don't give up the day job Berta, or even better read John Tavener on mending things that are baroque.
