One of the most sought after violinists of her generation performs a programme of masterpieces by Bach and Ysaÿe.
When a violinist performs completely unaccompanied, it can be like walking a highwire: a feat of supreme artistic skill and courage. But Nicola Benedetti is more than just a superbly assured performer, and in pairing two of Bach’s masterpieces for solo violin with two of Eugène Ysaÿe’s fantastic, dazzlingly virtuosic unaccompanied Sonatas, we can expect new insights into both of these two very different masters of the art of creating a world from four strings and a bow. Playing of fearless expression, meanwhile, can be taken as read.
Concert 11am, see website for full details.
