History in the making: Nicola Benedetti, our Artist in Residence this season, is no ordinary violinist. Tonight, in her first ever unaccompanied recital, she plays some of the most sophisticated and beautiful music ever created for a bow and four strings: from the timeless beauty of Bach to Ysaÿe’s fantastical Fifth Sonata – plus something completely new by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis.
This concert is due to finish at approximately 9.20pm and there will be a 20 minute interval.
Bach Partita No.2 in D minor
