East Neuk Festival 1/4

Belcea String Quartet perform Haydn and Benjamin Baker plays Bach.

Kate Molleson presents a selection of performances from the 15th East Neuk Festival, held in beautiful locations across the Kingdom of Fife. From Crail Parish Church, Benjamin Baker plays Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita in D minor for solo violin (BWV 1004), which was written between 1717 and 1720 and consists of five movements including a chaconne which Yehudi Menuhin described as "the greatest structure for solo violin that exists". Harpist, Catrin Finch, brings some Spanish charm to the festival with Torre Bermeja by Albeniz and the programme starts with the critically acclaimed Belcea String Quartet performing Haydn's String Quartet Op 33 No 5 in the relaxed surroundings of The Bowhouse in St. Monans.
