Recital with Bolette Roed (recorder) und Małgorzata Sarbak (harpsichord)

Date: 05. - 05.10.2022 18.00

Bolette Roed successfully stands up for the delicate instrument recorder, on which the highest art can flourish. Together with her musical partner Małgorzata Sarbak, she demonstrates it with the example of masterly violin sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach, which the two musicians have arranged for their instrumentation - a procedure that was completely natural in the Baroque era.

The program in detail:

Sonatas for violin and harpsichord (between 1717 and 1723)
in arrangements for recorder and harpsichord by Bolette Roed and Malgorzata Sarbak

Sonata in B minor BWV 1014

Sonata in E major BWV 1016
Adagio ma non tanto

Sonata in C minor BWV 1017
Siciliano. Largo

The artists

The Danish recorder player Bolette Roed studied at the Royal Conservatory in Copenhagen and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Lyon. Soon after her debut, she was named Artist of the Year by Danmarks Radio and awarded the Jacob Gade Foundation Grand Prize. In 2019, Bolette Roed founded the Copenhagen Baroque Festival. Her repertoire ranges from the Middle Ages to projects with jazz musicians and DJs. She regularly performs concerts with Ensemble Arte dei Suonatori, Elephant House Quartet and her trio Alpha (recorder, saxophone, percussion). Most recently she released the albums "Telemann's Garden" and "Vivaldi's Seasons".

In addition to her studies at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the New England Conservatory in Boston, Polish harpsichordist Małgorzata Sarbak attended master classes with Bob van Asperen, Jos van Immerseel and Robert Hill. As a soloist and chamber musician, she has performed with Sinfonia Varsovia, the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Vienna Morphing Orchestra, and has appeared at festivals in Nantes, Bilbao, Copenhagen, Berlin, and Tokyo. Sarbak performs on period keyboard instruments such as the tangent grand, on which she also interprets works by Chopin. For the CD, she recorded Bach's Klavierübung I and music by Polish composer Paweł Szymański.
