Bach: The Complete Solo Violin Works

Jennifer Koh

Sunday, October 23, 2011, 2pm

This event has ended.

  Perhaps Brahms best described what Bach achieved with his landmark solo violin works: “On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings.” The exceptional violinist Jennifer Koh follows up her acclaimed rendition of these works, heard over several recitals in Miller’s 2009-10 Lunchtime series, with this marathon performance of all six solo sonatas and partitas, played over the course of a single afternoon.

This program will be performed with two brief pauses and will conclude by 5 p.m.



  • Sonata No. 1 in G minor, BWV 1001
  • Partita No. 1 in B minor, BWV 1002
  • Sonata No. 2 in A minor, BWV 1003
  • Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004
  • Sonata No. 3 in C Major, BWV 1005
  • Partita No. 3 in E Major, BWV 1006
