Violinist Max Baillie combines dazzling technique with emotional range in this new type of recital in the Colnaghi Gallery. More intimate than a front-row seat, watch the details of a 16th century triptych come to life as the music unfolds. Directed by Jonathan Berman.
"The best online concert I've attended all year," said one audience member. This film won the award for best classical music performance (film) at the Palm Beach International Music Awards 2021 and was highly commended for cinematography in the Classical Music Digital Awards 2020.
The music: Partita No. 2 in D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Louange à l’immortalité de Jésus from Quartet For The End Of Time by Olivier Messiaen. The Messiaen is played with Diana Ketler.
The art: Anonymous (Antwerp School, first half of the 16th century) and Jacob De Backer (Antwerp, c. 1555-1585). The performance was filmed at the Colnaghi Gallery in London. The director is Jonathan Berman, the orchestral conductor.
