Michael Barenboim violin

Bach Sonata No.3 in C major 23′
Michael Hersch the weather and landscape are on our side 20′  (UK premiere)

Johannes Boris Borowski Up and Down 9′ (world premiere)
Bach Partita No.3 in E major 18′
Bartók Sonata for solo violin 26′

(ends approx. 5.20pm)

Bach throws his light, by turns dazzling and warmly radiant, over this UK recital debut from Michael Barenboim, though Bartók’s fusion of virtuosity and heart-on-sleeve emotion brings no easy resolution. Fragments of letters written by the Polish writer and artist Bruno Schulz lie unseen behind Michael Hersch’s new work and Barenboim gives the first performance of music by his close friend and collaborator Johannes Borowski.
