An international violin virtuoso thanks healthcare workers by joining them in a virtual Bach concerto. This is wonderful…
Lockdown has made us deeply appreciate our brilliant healthcare workers, and really miss making music together.
Together with ten healthcare workers, who all happen to be fantastic violinists on the side, Bell organised a multitracked rendition of the first movement of Bach’s Double Violin Concerto.
“Over the past several months I’ve been so moved by the heroism of the healthcare workers who’ve really risked their lives on the frontlines of this pandemic,” Bell said.
“I’m also very much aware that many of them are fabulous musicians. So I’m very glad I have this opportunity to make music with some of them.”
