The Times has described Rachel Podger as “the unsurpassed British glory of the Baroque violin”, and this delightful concert will confirm this. Here she plays two Bach pieces interspersed with the composer’s lesser known contemporary, Tartini. Bach’s Cello Suite No 1 in G major is transposed for the violin – not such a radical idea as you might think as Bach regularly re-cycled and re-purposed his own compositions for different instruments. This violin version is full of colour, vision and vibrancy and offers fascinating new insights into the familiar work.
