Apparent Intonation Problems

I was listening to Henryk Szeryng and Nathan Milstein's recording of Bach's Violin Partitas and Sonatas when I realised there was a slight intonation problem in one of the movements in BWV 1006. Towards the end of the movement, Nathan Milstein's recording started to sound a little flat. As I compared both of their recordings, they both started almost similarly. Yet, at the end, Milstein's recording became duller due to the flat intonation as compared to the other recordings of it that I have.

Oh well, maybe it's just a small intonation problem in this particular movement. He was supposed to be well known for his pure intonation anyway. Or maybe it's just my ears... Hmm...
