Rachel Podger, a leading exponent in the field of period performance, will be appearing at the Colyer-Fergusson Hall next week, in a programme of music for solo violin.
Former leader of The English Concert from 1997 to 2002 and a guest director with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, as well as establishing the Brecon Baroque Festival, Rachel is an inspirational performing musician. The concert on Friday 21 February includes Bach’s Flute Partita in A minor, transposed for violin, and Biber’s ‘Guardian Angel,’ the final work from his Mystery Sonatas.
Here’s Rachel at the BBC Proms back in 2007, in the exquisite second movement of Bach’s Double Violin Concerto in D minor, playing with Andrew Manze.
