Daniel Rowland to give solo violin recital in Leiden, Netherlands

This coming weekend sees Daniel Rowland travel to Leiden, Netherlands, for a solo violin recital at the Stadsgehoorzaal Leiden.

He will present his programme at 11.30am on Sunday 12th January, as part of the theatre’s Koffieconcert series, featuring works by Bach, Ysaÿe, Glass, Berio, Biber and Bartók.

Daniel looks forward to returning to the Stadsgehoorzaal after he curated and performed in a series of chamber concerts there in March of last year. The concert will take place in the Aalmarktzaal, a recently-converted market building behind the main Stadsgehoorzaal structure, which now boasts a 335-seat hall, brilliantly suited to chamber music performance.

The concert will present a wonderful showcase of the diverse array of music written for solo violin. The first half centres around a movement from one of Bach’s iconic violin partitas, which is framed by a selection of works taking direct influence from Bach’s solo violin works, indisputable cornerstones of the repertoire. Extracts from Philip Glass’s beautiful Partita for Solo Violin come after Belgian virtuoso Eugène Ysaÿe’s Sonata, which quotes directly from another of Bach’s Partitas, and Berio’s mesmeric Sequenza VIII is a self-proclaimed tribute to the Chaconne from Bach’s Partita in D minor, the same movement which Daniel will play. The second half of the programme is made up of two more core works for solo violin: Biber’s Passacaglia is the final movement of his well-known series of Rosary Sonatas (also known as the Mystery Sonatas), and the concert will conclude with Bartók’s famously-virtuosic Sonata for Solo Violin, originally written for Yehudi Menuhin.
