THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 BIBER Rosary Sonata No.I (The Annunciation) BIBER Rosary Sonata No.IV (The Presentation in the Temple) MUFFAT Passacaglia in G minor for harpsichord WALTHER Serenata No.28 from Hortulus Chelicus BIBER Rosary Sonata No.VII (The Agony in the Garden, Lamento) FROBERGER Suite XII in C major for harpsichord ‘Lamento Sopra la dolorosa perdita di Ferdinando IV’ SCHMELZER ‘Sonata Quarta’ from Sonatae per unarum fidium BACH ‘Ciaccona’ from Partita No.2 in D minor, BWV1004 Baroque violin specialist Elizabeth Wallfisch returns with a programme of virtuosic and extraordinarily beautiful works by the leading violinist-composers of the 17th-century. Biber’s ‘Mystery’ or ‘Rosary’ Sonatas were written to complement the 15 meditations on the life of Christ and the Virgin Mary. Schmelzer was a significant influence on Biber who may have been one of his pupils. Walther’s Hortulus Chelicus is one of the most important collections of 17th-century violin music. The highly unusual Serenata requires the violinist to imitate a surprising array of instruments including harp, trumpet, hurdy-gurdy and timpani. Bach’s monumental ‘Ciaccona’ from the D minor Partita, one of the most technically and musically demanding works for violin, completes the programme. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm
