"Not just one of the greatest pieces of music ever written, but one of the greatest achievements of any man in history. It's a spiritually powerful piece, emotionally powerful, structurally perfect."

— Joshua Bell (referring to the Chaconne from the Partita No. 2)

 

Tafelmusik Music Director Elisa Citterio, Festival regular Julia Wedman and fellow Tafelmusik violinist Patricia Ahern take us on a musical journey from profound darkness to brilliant luminescence. Presented in two parts on a single ticket, this is Baroque violin at its very best!
