Event description

Description

J.S. Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin are among the most exceptional pieces for unaccompanied violin and were modelled on some of the most populars dances of the baroque era. Find out about the dances Bach used, how he adapted them and the origins of his inimitable style. We will explore the history of the genre and discuss whether Bach’s composition was a singular work of genius or the pinnacle of a well-worn compositional path. Discover how composers such as Biber and Westhoff blazed the trail as much as half a century before Bach had written his collection and listen to their music all performed on an historical instrument. Join local violinist Alice Earll for a concert of Bach, Westhoff and Biber and more with opportunities for discussion and drinks in the atmospheric Old Chapel Court, Tewkesbury.

Tickets at £5 available for under 25s - please call 01684 850112
