Soli Deo Gloria 4

Charles Owen (piano)
Alex Jennings(reader)

Bach – Italian Concerto
Gerard Manley Hopkins – The Windhover
Emily Dickinson – I started Early – Took my Dog –
Wallace Stevens – Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird / The Idea of Order at Key West

Bach – Capriccio in B flat major ‘On the departure on his beloved brother’
George Herbert – The Pulley / The Collar / Redemption
R. S. Thomas – The Coming / The Bright Field
Bach – Partita no. 4 in D major

The high spirits of Bach’s famous Italian Concerto give way to a piece composed in sadness on the departure of his brother, which is followed in turn perhaps the most magnificent of all the dance suites Bach called Partitas. Interlaced with the music, Alex Jennings reads great poems of revelation and consolation.

‘One of the finest British pianists of his generation’ – Gramophone

‘pellucid articulation, a bright and shining sound, absolutely no pedal, and an exuberant delight in these colourful works… as Bach pianism goes, this was as exciting as it gets’ – The Independent
