Isabelle Faust Recital Violins

Isabelle Faust likes to alternate époques, a baroque violin with natural strings and a contemporary violin, the eccentric art of Heinrich Biber and the polyphonic challenges of Heinz Holliger. Favored soloist of Claudio Abbado and Franz Bruggen, of Bernard Haitink and Philippe Herreweghe, Isabelle Faust has long practiced historical off-roading. Michael Jarrell dedicated his concerto for violin, Paysage avec figures absentes, to her as well as its rereading (Nachlese IV) where the entire stage belonged to the solo violin. Dornröschen, the name of the 1704 Stradivarius played by the violinist today, will be a part of a new commentary on the original work that of electronics, consubstantial in the violin’s score.
