BWV 1004 performed by Dario Hulsing
Behind the music
Gigue from Violin partita no. 2
Violin Partita no. 2 is very special to Dario Hulsing (15). He has studied it in great depth and it is his favourite piece for violin. In the masterclasses given by Shunske Sato, he worked on his interpretation of the Gigue from Partita no. 2; for example on relaxation and on giving breadth to musical phrases. These lessons have inspired Dario to listen more to authentic interpretations of this piece.
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.
