Presented by Melbourne Bach Choir
Chamber Music of J.S. Bach
About the artists
In this pre-dinner recital Madeleine Easton, violin, Rosanne Hunt, cello and Donald Nicolson, harpsichord – three of Australia’s most respected baroque specialists – will explore the themes of fate, sacrifice and joy in the instrumental music of J.S. Bach, reflecting the overarching theme and experience of Easter.
About the concert
The programme will feature two of Bach’s innovative sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord, where the keyboard instrument plays a melodic role equal to that of the violin. Rosanne will play the second suite for solo cello, whose contrasting dance movements constitute one of music’s most profound creations.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
