Nicola Benedetti, unaccompanied and in-the-round in a uniquely intimate concert at Town Hall.
For a violinist to perform completely unaccompanied is like walking a highwire: an act of supreme artistic skill – and courage. But Nicola Benedetti is no ordinary violinist; and the audience that she draws around her for this Town Hall concert will experience something utterly unique.
Something profound, too - Bach’s Partitas for solo violin are some of the most sophisticated and yet piercingly beautiful music ever created for a bow and four strings. Benedetti understands that, and she’s paired Bach with Ysaÿe’s fantastical Fifth Sonata and something new by jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. A universe in a grain of sand: be there, and be transported.
Nicola Benedetti is a THSH Artist in Residence.
