Margaret Faultless violin
Steven Devine harpsichord
Johann Sebastian Bach
Sonatas for violin and harpsichord
Our series of Bach’s chamber music continues with sonatas
from the great set for violin and obbligato harpsichord BWV
1014-1019. With these ground-breaking works, written in
the early 1720s, Bach modernised the Baroque trio sonata,
elevating the role of the harpsichord from accompanist to
equal partner with the violin. They have always been admired
for the exhilarating drive and energy of their fugal fast
movements and the lyricism of their adagios. Steven Devine
also plays Bach’s scintillating Italian Concerto and the rarelyperformed
Aria variata all maniera Italiana BWV 989, a
youthful anticipation of the Goldberg Variations.
Margaret Faultless is one Britain’s most distinguished and sought-after violinists
specialising in period performance. She is co-leader of the Orchestra of the Age of
Enlightenment, Head of Historical Performance at the Royal Academy and Director
of Studies for the European Union Baroque Orchestra. Steven Devine is the leading
British harpsichordist of his generation, and performs regularly at the Festival.
He plays a copy by Colin Booth of a harpsichord made by J.C. Fleischer of Hamburg
in 1710, the sort of instrument used by the Bach family.
