Chamber concert in the painter's studio

28.06.2014, 19h30

The internationally renowned artists Justyna Niznik (Violine) and Marta Dotkus (Cembalo) have selected the painter's studio for their new concert series. Due to it's nice ambience and, above all, because it's a real good sound space for the intimacy of Bach's sonates - as the musicians say.

Although the cycle not only touches the hearts of musical purists, it is rarely performed nor recorded in it's completeness. This is why the two Baroque specialists offer this particular opportunity to experience the six sonates as a whole.
