Superstar Canadian violinist James Ehnes has week announced the launch of his new online series ‘Recitals From Home‘ – featuring Bach’s 6 Solo Violin Sonatas and Partitas and Ysaye’s 6 Solo Violin Sonatas.

The first episode of the series, created at home by James during the COVID-19 pandemic, features Bach’s 1st Solo Violin Sonata in G Minor – coupled with Ysaye’s 1st Solo Violin Sonata.

 

 

Episode 1 is available now at www.jamesehnes.com/recitalsfromhome for $10 for a 48 hour rental or $20 for purchase.

 

“This project has been made entirely without outside funding or sponsorship … it is important to me to see if I can create a workable business model for sharing performances directly with music lovers …” James has this week said.
 
“It has been a great pleasure to spend the last 4 weeks immersed in the music of Bach and Ysaÿe, and I’m tremendously grateful to my family for putting up with my dismantling of the living room, my middle-of-the-night recording sessions (the only time when noise isn’t an issue), and the all-consuming effort it has taken to put this all together,” he has said.
 
All purchased episodes will be available on Vimeo until the end of 2020 – at which point purchasers will receive a code to download the episodes to their own devices.
