ANAM Recital: Johnny van Gend


ANAM Recitals enable each ANAM musician to make their own personal musical statement, through performance, repertoire and presentation.

An exhibition of the true versatility of the violin, from Bach to Bartók.

In the space of an hour, be escorted chronologically through exciting repertoire from some of the greatest creative minds of the violin world. From the pure beauty of Bach's B minor Partita, to the lyricism of Mozart, to the fiendish virtuosity of Paganini, to the wild genius of Bartók, this is sure to be an afternoon of music that creates a nice full feeling in your musical bellies. I'm particularly looking forward to performing a complete Bach Partita, something I've never done before; likewise with the Mozart Sonata, but unfortunately time does not permit the complete Bartók concerto.

JS BACH Partita no. 1 in B minor for violin solo, BWV1002
MOZART Violin Sonata in B-flat major K378
PAGANINI Caprice no. 11 for violin solo, op. 1
BARTÓK Violin Concerto no. 2, movt 3
