Fabio Biondi has performed in the great concert halls both as a solo violinist and as the founding director of Europa Galante, one of Europe's finest baroque ensembles. He is joined for this performance of works of Bach and Locatelli by American harpsichordist Kenneth Weiss. Weiss, who studied with Gustav Leonhardt, is active both as a soloist and as an opera director. He is on the faculty at the Paris Conservatory and the Juilliard School. Three of Bach's sonatas for violin and harpsichord feature on this concert, along with the Concerto Italiano (performed by Kenneth Weiss), and a sonata for violin and continuo by Bach's contemporary, Pietro Locatelli.
