Conversations with Bach - Krysia Osostowicz and David Waterman
19 Jan 2019 | 7.30pm | £13, £11, £6 under 25s
Reaching across 3 centuries, Bach’s compositions for solo violin and cello are brought to life in a new way with readings of freshly written poetry and prose by celebrated authors George Szirtes and Eva Hoffman.
George’s poems play with the dance rhythms of Bach’s music, while Eva composes personal letters to Bach, asking questions about the tensions between his creativity and his personal life, the sources of his music in his time – and the mystery of its universal nature.
Two distinguished musicians – violinist Krysia Osostowicz (Dante Quartet) and cellist David Waterman (Endellion Quartet) – bring their own interpretation to these profound works which they have known and loved throughout their lives.
