Isabelle Faust plays Bach at St. Thomas Church Leipzig
“In her concentration, the violinist acts like a medium through which this unique music reaches us today,” says the NZZ about Isabelle Faust’s interpretation of the Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin by Johann Sebastian Bach. “What Faust is searching for on the inside is […] a truthfulness that results not only from the study of passed down conceptions of aesthetics, but also from today’s attitude towards life.” On Palm Sunday 2020, the exceptional violinist played Bach’s Partita No. 2 and Sonata No. 3 in the empty St. Thomas Church Leipzig, her interpretation exuding calm and confidence during trying times.
