Hay Music: Alice Earll (violin)
Wednesday 10th April 2019, 7.30pm
Hay Music: Alice Earll (violin)
‘Dancing with Bach’ - a recital and discussion

How did the popularity of dance influence music for solo violin in the Baroque period? What was the role of dance in Baroque society and how did this filter into the music of the period? An exploration of how the development of virtuosic writing for solo violin coincided with the evolution of the dance suite, culminating in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach: Partita No 3 in E major BWV 1006
Johann Paul von Westhoff: Suite No 1 for Solo Violin in A Minor
Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber: Passacgalia
Johann Sebastian Bach: Partita No 2 in D Minor BWV 1004

Alice Earll is a young and engaging British violinist specialising in period instrument performance. Alice studied under Pavlo Beznosiuk at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating in 2016 with a first-class degree and the Bickerdike Allen Prize for achievement. She has since gone on to perform with the Academy of Ancient Music at the BBC Proms and as part of the Lincoln Centre's Mostly Mozart Festival. She has also played at Shakespeare's Globe as part of 'Vivaldi's The Four Season - A Reimagining' with music by Max Richter and performed with various other groups such as the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Avison Ensemble, Ex Cathedra, Ensemble Marsyas and as a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra (EUBO). As a soloist, Alice has performed Telemann’s Concerto for Three Violins in F Major alongside Rachel Podger at the Wigmore Hall and given a series of lecture recitals about the development of unaccompanied violin music across the South West of England to much acclaim. As a founding member of Ensemble Molière, Alice has performed at the Brighton Early Music Festival, Bruges Early Music Festival and made her BBC Radio debut on BBC Radio 3's In Tune. She plays on a Thomas Kennedy violin on loan from the Harrison Frank Foundation. Forthcoming performances include 'Les Visionnaires' lunchtime concert as part of Leatherhead's Month of Baroque Music with Ensemble Molière and performances in Moscow and St Petersburg with The Tavener Choir, Consort and Players and Alice will be joining the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment on their tour of the Far East.
