Rachel Podger: The Guardian Angel (online)

Available until Wednesday 23 June

Celebrated as “the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin”, Rachel Podger presents a captivating programme of music for unaccompanied solo violin. With her trademark meticulous and masterful interpretations, Podger explores works by J.S Bach and Giuseppe Tartini alongside the hauntingly beautiful Guardian Angel’ Passacaglia from Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s Mystery Sonatas, the earliest known piece for solo violin.

Giuseppe Tartini – Sonata for Violin in B Minor
Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber – Passacaglia in G minor for solo violin from the Mystery Sonatas ‘The Guardian Angel’
