”You certainly don’t think about technique any more, you just feel how he communicates from heart to heart through the magical sounds of his violin.” The critic for the Rheinische Musik-Zeitung was euphoric in his review of two soirées by violinist Joseph Joachim together with Johannes Brahms in Göttingen in August of 1853.

The concerts with works by Bach, Mozart and Beethoven serve as the inspiration for Shunske Sato’s and Shuann Chai’s contribution to the Handel Festival. In addition to Joachim’s brilliant playing, his expertise in the field of baroque music can also be illustrated by means of contemporaneous accounts. Shunske Sato will thus follow in the footsteps of the great musician and rise to the challenge of interpreting the classical and baroque repertoire as heard by 19th-century ears. This evening will be moderated by Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Sandberger, who will expertly illuminate the various layers of historical performance practice.

Works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Joseph Joachim, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Georg Friedrich Händel, Ludwig van Beethoven
