Two star soloists come together in an exciting, electric and intensely poetic new duo partnership: we are delighted to welcome pianist Cordelia Williams and violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen to the Festival.
This is a vibrant and dramatic meeting of musical spirits, a true meeting of equals and a musical rapport that will see them record Bach’s complete duo sonatas in 2024. Their programme celebrates Bach, with a pairing of two of his duo sonatas which are searingly beautiful, playful and exhilarating. Schubert’s timeless Fantasie in C is offset by James Macmillan’s miniature After the Tryst, fuelled by the composer’s love of the Scottish folk ballad tradition.
