Allegro from Violin sonata no. 2

Dominique Seelen (15) is playing the Allegro from Violin Sonata no. 2 for the first time in her life. She thinks that the special thing about the Allegro is the main role played by the dynamics at the beginning of the movement, through which you can create a lot of timbres. Dominique would like to become better acquainted with the world of the Baroque violin and hopes to be able to express her ideas about music on both the Baroque violin and the modern violin.

In connection with the recordings of Bach’s Violin Sonatas and Partitas, the Netherlands Bach Society has organised a talent development project for the violinists and Baroque violinists of the future. Seven talented Dutch youngsters, aged thirteen to eighteen, were selected at auditions to take part in two masterclasses by Shunske Sato on Bach’s works for violin solo and the Baroque violin, which were held in the spring of 2019. Each young musician chose their own movement to rehearse and record for All of Bach.

This project was created in collaboration with the Netherlands Violin Competition. It received support from the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation, which provided the violinists with Baroque violins and bows, so that they could explore the new possibilities of these instruments and the Baroque style, under the guidance of Shunske Sato.

The recordings took place in the Lichtfabriek (Light Factory), a former power station in Haarlem.
