4 Nov. Isabelle Faust, violin, and Kristian Bezuidenhout, harpsichord, play five Bach sonatas.
The Guardian has written of Faust: “Where other violinists dazzle, Faust is a thinker,” and conductor Daniel Harding has described the quality of her playing as “uncluttered honesty”. Bezuidenhout is an early keyboard specialist. He is equally at home on the harpsichord, the fortepiano and the modern piano and is very eloquent at explaining the differences. Their programme at the IUC is similar to one they performed at the Wigmore Hall in London in 2016. Aula Magna, Università la Sapienza, www.concertiiuc.it.
