The Challenge Of The Solo: The Baroque Violin – Christopher Hogwood & Pavlo Beznosiuk
Pavlo Beznosiuk, one of the world’s leading baroque violinists, explains and demonstrates the challenge of music for solo violin; works by Nicola Matteis and Heinrich Biber lead to a discussion and performance of the famous Chaconne from Bach’s Solo Partita in D minor. Can such a work be satisfactorily analysed or does “music begin where words leave off”?
