About This Performance

Former first violinist of the Juilliard Quartet, Joseph Lin says of his two-part, all-Bach program: “Spending time with the music of Bach is both a privilege and a humbling experience. It challenges us to listen deeply, open our spirits, and imagine infinite possibility through sound. Little did Bach know that his Sonatas and Partitas would become the most essential works for any violinist. Yet these personal statements have survived to resonate a profound chord in humanity for generations and across cultures. Three centuries later, we have an opportunity to reflect on their remarkable qualities that not only endure but continue to evolve.”
