The Corvus Consort joins forces with Rachel Podger in a double-bill of concerts featuring Bach’s six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, BWV 1001-1006, alongside his six choral Motets, BWV 225-230.

With three motets interspersed amongst three solo violin works in each concert, the fragile beauty of Bach’s writing for solo violin sits in striking relief against the rich and masterful polyphony of the choral motets.
