The concert took place at 4pm on Sunday 5 April
To celebrate Palm Sunday, yesterday Isabelle Faust performed a live-streamed concert of Bach at St Thomas Church in Leipzig, where the composer spent the latter part of his career. The violinist played to an online audience only, the church being empty owing to the Covid-19 crisis. The concert included the Partita no.2 in D minor BWV1004 and the Sonata no.3 in C major BWV1005.
The performance was arranged by Accentus Music in a co-production with Germany’s MDR radio channel. It was live-streamed on the Arte channel at 4pm CET and is now available on demand. Watch the video below:
