Concert 14 October 2018

musician with violin

Afternoon violin recital, 3.30pm, Sunday 14 October at Aylsham Parish Church.

Simon Smith violin
Bach D minor partita, Kurtag, Paganini

Simon, a Royal Birmingham Conservatoire tutor, plays J S Bach’s D minor partita ahead of a performance of the work in Russia. Included in the concert will be pieces by Kurtag, Ysaÿe and Paganini.

The music is diverse but is brought together in a cleverly constructed, informed recital where music is linked by the dedicatees of the composer.

He has performed as a soloist with orchestras such as the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the Philharmonia, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.
