Look no Bass!

Violin soloists of the OAE present music for violins alone, highlighting the contrasts, textures and colours of the instrument that’s usually at the top of the sound-world of string instruments or playing wonderful inner parts. The programme will include Telemann’s concerti for four violins, and his programmatic Gulliver Duo, along with lesser known repertoire solos by master composer-performers, arrangements of Bach where repertoire for a single instrument has been transformed into quartets and at least one world premier created for today’s performance by the OAE violinists themselves.
