Bach Sonatas and Partitas
Rachel Podger, violin
Wednesday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m.
First Church Berkeley
The “queen of the Baroque violin” (Sunday Times), Festival favorite Rachel Podger returns with a selection of Johann Sebastian Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin, a foundation of the Baroque repertoire. Podger’s now-classic recording of the complete set of sonatas and partitas has become a benchmark account of these masterworks, and this special one-night-only concert is sure not to disappoint! This is part of the entire Berkeley Festival & Exhibition of early music, an eight-day celebration of eight centuries of music happening in Berkeley and San Francisco running June 5 through June 12. The Festival features a lineup of local, national, and international early music luminaries, and happens just once every two years. Because of the pandemic, though, the last one was in 2018!
