Adele Anthony

Violinist Adele Anthony

One of the great things about Johann Sebastian Bach is the wonderful variety of music that he left us, when he composed it in the 1700’s. Yesterday I posted about his Partitas and Toccatas for harpsichord, now mostly played by pianists; today, it is music for violin as accompanied by chamber orchestra, and Suites for orchestra.

As a start, here are some audio ‘nibbles’ for you, from my Spotify catalog. These feature Adele Anthony as soloist:
