The protagonist is walking through endless and wonderful space, and you are inclined to share his feelings. Perhaps this is how we may describe the impression Johann Sebastian Bach’s compositions for organ and violin make. On the razor’s edge, between the objective and the subjective, the great composer creates his worlds. The best place to listen to such music is a cathedral, where the organ is involved in divine services the whole day, and in the evening welcomes the beautiful violin and the grateful audience. The program includes a chaconne, sonatas and other pieces by the German genius.
