Violinist Max Baillie combines dazzling technique with emotional range in this new type of recital in the Colnaghi Gallery. More intimate than a front-row seat, watch the 16th century triptych and spiral staircase come to life as the music unfolds.

The programme is Partita No. 2 in D Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Louange à l’immortalité de Jésus from Quartet for the end of time by Olivier Messiaen. The art is Anonymous (Antwerp School, first half of the 16th century) and Jacob De Backer (Antwerp, c. 1555-1585). The performance was filmed at the Colnaghi Gallery in London. The director is Jonathan Berman, the orchestral conductor.
