The Rosary Sonatas: Part III

The Glorious Mysteries

One of the most extraordinary collections of music ever composed, full of fearsome virtuosity and dazzling expressiveness. The final of three concerts.

See times and book tickets

Exceptional Baroque violinist Rachel Podger concludes her three-concert exploration of Biber’s mystical Rosary Sonatas with the most celebratory, joyful music in the entire work.

Joined by her fine international colleagues, she performs the five final ‘Glorious Mysteries’, describing the Resurrection and Ascension of Christ, and the glorification of the Virgin Mary.

Podger brings her trilogy of concerts to a profoundly meditative conclusion with the deeply moving Guardian Angel, an introspective, valedictory work for violin alone.
