We are delighted to welcome Rachel Podger, one of the world’s leading baroque violinists, to Milngavie with this fascinating programme of music for solo violin. She takes us on a wide-ranging journey through the heart-on- sleeve passion and virtuosic audacity of 18th century instrumental music. Naturally JS Bach and Corelli feature, but there is so much more to explore, including some of the catchy folk tunes of the period.
