of a signal from inside a studio at Broadcasting House; to the transmitter at Droitwich; to a ship at sea; to a transistor radio several hundred kilometres away; reveal audible aspects of broadcasting.

Description:

Fenella Humphreys (solo violin) "With playing described in the press as ‘alluring’ and ‘a wonder’, violinist Fenella Humphreys is much in demand as a chamber musician and soloist, with performances taking her across the globe. Her first concerto recording, of Christopher Wright’s Violin Concerto for Dutton Epoch with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, was released recently to great critical acclaim, including selection as ‘Orchestral Choice CD’ in a 5 star review in the BBC Music Magazine. She has collaborated with artists including Alexander Baillie, Pekka Kuusisto and Martin Lovett, and is regularly invited by Steven Isserlis to take part in the International Musicians’ Seminar, Prussia Cove. Konzertmaster of the Deutsche Kammerakademie, she also enjoys guest leading and directing various ensembles in Europe. In 2012 Fenella created Bach To The Future, an inspirational commissioning project for six established composers to write works for solo violin to be performed alongside Bach’s six Sonatas and Partitas. Three of these works, by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Piers Hellawell and Gordon Crosse, were premiered at the Maltings, Snape this year in a residency, while the other three, by Sally Beamish, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and Adrian Sutton, follow next year. In today’s recital Fenella presents Bach's Partita in E major with its new 'fellow', by Cheryl Frances-Hoad; in addition we hear a landmark for solo violin from a later era, the Sonata no.2 by Ysäye, in which the great Belgian violinist himself quoted and reflected upon Bach’s ideas from the Bach Partita in E. The recital opens with a Sonata by the ‘father’ of solo violin, Heinrich Biber, the Baroque composer whose landmark violin works form the background to Bach. Please note: second recital event today at 5.30 pm. "
