- Rachel Barton Pine, violin, and Jory Vinikour, harpsichord
- J.S. Bach's Masterpieces for Violin and Harpsichord
October 6 at 3:30
West Building, West Garden Court
This concert is first in a series of performances by female violinists, showcasing the brilliance and stylistic versatility of the instrument from jazz, bluegrass, and baroque to contemporary classical programs.
In both art and life, violinist Rachel Barton Pine has an extraordinary ability to connect with people. Celebrated as a leading interpreter of great classical and contemporary works, her performances combine her innate gift for emotional communication and her scholarly fascination with historical research. Pine and harpsichordist Jory Vinikour—critically acclaimed artists of international renown and also close friends—perform together for the first time with a program of J.S. Bach's masterpieces for violin and harpsichord. The artists approach these works as Bach intended: as trio sonatas with equally important roles for the violin and the harpsichord’s treble and bass lines.
