A unique event showcasing three fine young violinists - Cecilia Bernardini, Bojan Cicic and Huw Daniel - and three superb old instruments. The Jumpstart Jr. Foundation was founded in The Netherlands in 2006 as the custodian of a unique collection of historical string instruments, which it lends to specially selected young players already recognised as being well on the way to becoming leading lights in the field of historical performance. The programme also offers them career-related coaching and access to an extensive international network of opportunities. This is your chance to see and hear the future!

Concert 1

Sei solo a violino
10.30am – c.11.15am

The title of JS Bach's violin sonatas and partitas may have a double meaning at its heart. As well as meaning 'Six solos', in Italian Sei solo could also mean 'you are alone', given the proximity of the death of Bach's first wife to the date of these compositions. For a baroque violinist, there is no greater reward than bringing these notes on the page to life.
