Bach was a prolific arranger of his own music, and this lunchtime recital includes some modern transcriptions in the same spirit. The Chinese guitarist Xuefei Yang, dubbed by a New York critic “one of the most extraordinary instrumentalists in the world”, plays her own versions of a Fugue for lute and the well-known A minor Violin Concerto. The Heath Quartet, winners of a 2016 Gramophone Award, join her in the Concerto, and add their interpretations of three organ chorale preludes. Finally, the musicians transport us to the Spain of the Classical period with a colourful Quintet by Luigi Boccherini.
