Music

Programme to include:

Bach: Sonata for violin and keyboard 1 in B minor, BWV 1014
Bach: Sonata for violin and keyboard 4 in C minor, BWV 1017
Bach: arr. Simcock, Wachet Auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV 645
Bach: arr. Simcock, Jesus bleibet meine Freude, BWV 147

Expect an exhilarating genre-bending concert for International Jazz Day as Gould and Simcock, both well known in their respective fields of classical and jazz, explore the intersections between notation and improvisation and between classical and jazz. Drawing on Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard by J. S. Bach, as well as other arrangements by Simcock (‘a creative genius’ according to Chick Corea), this will be a wonderful exploration of Bach’s influence and music.

4pm- 5pm: Masterclass/workshop – observers welcome.

Doors open at 7:15pm
