The world-renowned early music specialist and keyboard player Ton Koopman and the violinist Catherine Manson perform the six Sonatas for Harpsichord and Violin, BWV 1014-1019 of Johann Sebastian Bach on this new 2-CD set for Challenge Classics. Their previous collaboration on the label was an outstanding recording of the music of Buxtehude.

Catherine Manson enjoys a versatile performing career specialising in period performance as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. She became the current leader of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra in 2006, and as first violinist of the London Haydn Quartet has been involved in a critically acclaimed series of recordings of the Haydn quartets for Hyperion. Together with keyboard player and musical director Ton Koopman she has recorded all the Buxtehude chamber music, and has appeared frequently as a chamber musician together with such artists as Trevor Pinnock, Anner Bylsma, Malcolm Bilson, Steven Isserlis and Michael Chance. Alongside her recordings for Hyperion she has also released CDs for the Dorian, Glossa, ASV and Teldec labels.

As a harpsichord player and director of the group he founded, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir, Ton Koopman has been a regular guest at leading concert halls in Vienna, London, Berlin, Brussels, Madrid, Rome, Salzburg, Tokyo and Osaka. Between 1994 and 2004 he has conducted and recorded all the existing cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, a massive work for which he has been awarded with the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis “Echo Klassik 1997”, the Prix Hector Berlioz, and been nominated for both the Grammy Awards (USA) and the Gramophone Awards. Volume 22 of the Bach Cantatas in 2008 won a BBC Music Magazine Award.
