In video: Melvyn Tan

Melvyn Tan returns to Spitalfields this Summer for a programme brimming with Bach and brilliance. Alongside two of JS Bach‘s English Suites (Nos. 2 and 5) he will be giving the world premiere of works by 11 acclaimed British composers in Variations for Judith.

The variations are a series of short reflections on Bist du bei mir by GH Stölzel, arranged by JS Bach, and were written for Spitalfields Music’s former Executive Director, Judith Serota. They include contributions from composers Peter Maxwell Davies, Thea Musgrave, and Jonathan Dove and Judith Weir whose variations you can hear along with the theme in the video below.

Don’t miss Melvyn Tan on Monday 18 June at 9.00pm in Shoreditch Church (St Leonard’s). Book online now.
