Bach in Bali

Bach's D Minor Partita Performed by Violinist Robert Brown and Danced by Nyoman Sura at Bali's Ubud Writers and Readers Festival.


(9/28/2009)

Considered the Mt. Everest of solo violin performance, J.S. Bach's magnificent D Minor Partita will be performed in an extraordinary setting at the Ubud Writer and Reader's Festival on Wednesday, October 7, 2009, at Ubud's Pura Dalem Royal Palace.

Presented by Bali-based international concert violinist, Robert Brown, the music will accompany an original dance work created by Bali's internationally acclaimed choreographer/dancer, Nyoman Sura. Inspired by the complexity and majesty of Bach's music, Sura will portray a fanciful visit by the young Bach to Bali where he falls in love with a Balinese princess.

Robert Brown will bring decades of skill as an international violinist to perform all five movements of Bach's D Minor Partita culminating in the famous chaconne - a 256 measure tour de force of violin virtuosity.

Nyoman Sura's interpretation uses Bach's composition to tell a Balinese tale:

First movement – Allemande. Free and meditative, the dancing Bach sees a group of Balinese dancers and musicians perform in Germany and is immediately captivated by the beauty and exoticness of both the music and movement. Considering a trip to Bali, he is perplexed as to whether he should undertake such a long trip. In the final moments of the first movement his mind is set as he recalls the beauty of one of the dancers.

Second movement – a courante. The fast and stormy music of this movement depicts a storm at sea that gradually gives way to the calm seas of a Balinese port.

Third movement. A majestic, ceremonial sarabande relates how a Balinese king and his court at the beach greet the visitors from Europe. The movement proceeds with great grandeur but at the very end, a coda, there is a whispered conversation between Bach and the Balinese princess, where they agree to meet later.

Fourth Movement. A gigue - a lively dance relating the festivities at a gathering hosted by the King.

Fifth Movement – chaconne. Using the many moods and variation of this remarkable piece of music, the accompanying dance shows how Bach, now totally enamored by the Princes, trying to persuade her to return with him to Germany. The piece has many special moments, some of which bring to mind organ music in a church where Bach tells the princess of his destiny as a musician at the service of his faith. The piece ends in disappointment as the princess refuses the young Bach's invitation to live in Europe.

Don't miss the rare and exciting performance!

Admission is free of charge.
