WorksPartita for solo violin no.2 in D minor, BWV1004
ArtistsGordan Nikolitch (violin)

William Gaunt (baritone)
London Symphony Orchestra
As part of the 2011 City of London Festival, Tenebrae joined an ensemble from the LSO at St Paul’s Cathedral for a performance of the Fauré Requiem, preceded by a selection of Bach’s Chorales interspersed with Partitas performed by Gordan Nikolitch, leader of the LSO.
The centrepiece of the programme was Helga Thoene’s remarkable arrangement of Bach’s choral themes with solo violin. The performance was restaged in May 2012 in the sublime acoustic of the Church of St Giles Cripplegate and recorded by LSO Live.
The Fauré Requiem in D minor exists in three different versions, the John Rutter edition for chamber orchestra being performed here.
"no matter where you sat it was impossible not to be uplifted … Hard to decide who was the most eloquent, [Gordan] Nikolitch or the tender voices of Tenebrae, conducted by Nigel Short" - The Times
