Gil Shaham, violin
Bach Six Solos for Violin with original films by David Michalek
Bach’s towering masterpieces, touchstones for violinists across the ages, inspire a new multimedia event to refresh the soul. The Sei solo (“six alone”), as Bach labeled his set of three sonatas and three partitas for solo violin, are iconic landmarks of European culture, not just the violin repertory. They opened new worlds of expressive and technical possibilities. One of the foremost violinists of our time, Gil Shaham, the winner of multiple Grammy Awards and other prizes, plays the complete six in an exciting live recital to a video production by David Michalek.
