Partita BWV 1006

After several postponements we are delighted at last to welcome the brilliant young German recorder player Tabea Debus with German-based Israeli lutenist Alon Sariel. Tabea is an international phenomenon, celebrated wherever she plays as a charismatic musician of extraordinary versatility and originality. Alon is at home in both early and new music, having premiered dozens of works and appeared at several leading festivals. Their programme together promises a veritable cornucopia of baroque virtuosity beginning and ending with Bach.

"A musician of great finesse.” Diapason

"Light of touch, stylistically assured and brimful of intelligence and wit.”  The Gramophone
