Rachael Podger has been called 'the queen of the baroque violin', with Gramophone magazine describing her as 'a glorious example of someone who lives her life through her violin'. Today, she walks a sonic tightrope as she plays the baroque repertoire for unaccompanied violin – by turns flamboyant, playful, perilous and sublime. Expect colourful fantasies from Matteis and Westhoff and intellectual bravura from Bach, as well as something new (and very personal) from Chad Kelly.
