Patricia Kopatchinskaja

“This is a violinist with something more important to offer than dazzling technique. It’s called character.”

Times (London)

The Moldovan violinist shows off her fiery style with Bach’s powerful Chaconne and Bartók’s homage to the composer, his Sonata for solo violin.

There is no late seating.

This performance is approximately one hour with no intermission.
