BSO at Home: Bach Project

While artists who form the Boston Symphony Orchestra are currently unable to play together at Symphony Hall, they continue to make music as they stay at home. The musicians are taking comfort in playing music they know and love, and they are continuing to hone their skills by practicing new music and music that always presents new challenges.

Johann Sebastian Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin have special meaning for musicians and music-lovers alike. Many BSO violinists say that these pieces are central to their relationship to all music, and that each approaches the Sonatas and Partitas in unique ways as these represent the most personal aspect of a violinist’s repertoire.

Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas present extraordinary technical and musical challenges for their performers. In this wonderful offering, members of the BSO’s violin section present the complete cycle of works, with individual movements shared among a number of players. You’ll be given unique insight into their approaches and artistry with new videos uploaded weekly.

Though we can't wait to hear the BSO musicians play together again, we hope you enjoy this special and very personal musical experience of Bach's Sonatas and Partitas.
