In memoriam: A violinist plays Bach at European Parliamentmain
After a minute’s silence and a (rather feeble) singing of La Marsellaise by MEPs, Vladyslava Luchenko gave a rapt account of the Adagio from J.S. Bach’s Sonata in G minor, BWV 1001.
Fast-forward to 15:00 in the video.
Luchenko, Kiev-born, is artist in residence at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth in Brussels. She plays the Piatti Stradiarius, on loan to her from the Michael Guttman foundation.
