Rachel Podger (violin)

Rachel Podger, ‘the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin’ (The Times), brings together two solo works by J.S. Bach: Cello Suite no 3 in C Major transposed for the violin from her latest disc and Sonata no 2 in A Minor. Rachel writes: ‘Playing at Stour has always been a special part of the summer, and I always love and look forward to the special warm atmosphere only a homegrown festival with such a rich history can grow over so many years. I remember playing a late night concert of solo Bach years ago and appreciated Mark Deller sitting backstage and smiling at me when I came off afterwards. It seemed as though he'd always sat there!’
