Lymp Ents: Conversations with Bach

LYMPSTONE ENTERTAINMENTS – Sunday 2 October, 4pm –  –  Conversations with Bach –

– Krysia Osostowicz (violin), Georg Szirtes & Eva Hoffman at Lympstone Parish Chucrh

This very special concert has been created by violinist Krysia Osostowicz, leader of the Brodsky Quartet, who thrilled a packed church in Lympstone only a few days ago.
Krysia plays a beautiful violin made by Francesco Goffriller in Venice in 1720, the year that Bach completed his six Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin.
In 2020, to celebrate the 300th anniversary both of Bach’s works and of her violin, Krysia invited two renowned and music-loving writers, Polish author Eva Hoffman and Hungarian-born poet Georges Szirtes, to respond to Bach’s music with brief commentaries in poetry and prose. It is this celebration that she is now bringing to Lympstone: “My little team is greatly looking forward to coming to play for you in Lympstone on 2nd October. It’s been a pleasure to create this unusual programme of music and words. Bach’s music is interspersed with George Szirtes’ wonderful Bach-inspired poems, while Eva Hoffman’s personal thoughts on Bach provide a unifying narrative.”

Bach himself speaks through selections from his Violin Sonatas and Partitas, performed by Krysia, and from his solo Cello Suites played by Miguel Angel Ceron, a child prodigy from Mexico who is now the Principal Cellist of the Mexican Symphony Orchestra.
