Bach Now! with Nigel Kennedy

12 November 2023 at 16:00

The great British violin virtuoso, always thrillingly direct and searchingly creative, turns his attention to one of his musical first loves, the music of Bach.

The solo and double violin concertos are a seamless thread of invention and rhythmic vitality wrapped around the famous slow central movements. Here, particularly in the double concertos, the interweaving ornamental solo lines combine to create achingly beautiful arias every bit as profound as the composer’s sacred vocal music. Leading Oxford Philharmonic and duetting with their star principals he presents a survey of some of the composer’s best-loved instrumental music.
