Violinist Harriet Mackenzie and Milos Milivojevic perform at the Salisbury Festival
BACH AND BALLET
Celebrating the movement theme of the Festival, violinist Harriet Mackenzie is joined by international prizewinning accordionist Milos Milivojevic and the Ballet de l’Opéra Grand Avignon for a unique evening. Milos and Harriet will perform gems of the repertoire by J.S Bach, Albeniz, Biber and Piazzolla, all inspired by dance. This sets the scene for a piece of new, innovative choreography by Julien Guérin to J.S Bach’s incomparable solo violin Partita No.2 in D minor, described by Yehudi Menhuin as “the greatest structure for solo violin that exists”, performed by the stars of Ballet de l’Opéra Grand d’Avignon and Harriet Mackenzie.
Co-commissioned for 2020 by Wiltshire Creative, ArtHouse Jersey and Liberation International Music Festival.
