Biber: Sorrowful Sonatas & Scordatura Meditations from the Rosary Sonatas

Saturday 28 October at 7.30pm
Robinson College Chapel

Daniel Pioro violin
James McVinnie chamber organ

Biber’s Rosary Sonatas have become an iconic work of the Baroque violin literature. Composed around 1676, they were not discovered until their first publication in1905. They make extensive use of the “scordatura” technique, which is a non standard way of tuning the instrument, brought here to a unique degree of sophistication and complexity, giving the work a uniquely expressive sound world. This programme focuses on the Sorrowful Mysteries Sonatas which is the heart of the cycle, and is performed by Daniel Pioro, who won great acclaim when he performed the complete Rosary Sonata in the Southbank last year.
