Bach um vier
Bach at four II
Evgeny Sviridov (violin und moderation)
Whoever only associates keyboard instruments with Bach is hugely mistaken: Johann Sebastian Bach also played the violin ›purely and pervasively‹ up to a high age, as his sons remembered. From Bach’s Köthener years evolve these ›Six violin solos without accompanying bass‹ of which a famous violinist of the time said, he has ›never seen anything more perfect to become a good violinist‹. Evgeny Syiridoy, who has long held a place among the international top baroque violinists, demonstrates in this second lecture concert in the series ›Bach at four‹ what exactly is hiding in Bach’s genius studies of the polyphone capabilities of four strings.
