  • James Ehnes violin

Bach completed his six sonatas and partitas for solo violin in 1720 at Cöthen. The pieces crown a great tradition of German violin music, transcending existing models to create works of compelling musical interest and jaw-dropping technical demands.

James Ehnes, acclaimed for his probing musicianship and virtuosity, explores the full range of Bach’s invention in two concerts over the course of one weekend.
