BACH FESTIVAL - BAROQUE VIOLIN - MONICA HUGGETT
OUR LADY OF FATIMA BACH FESTIVAL

July 19, 2013  7:30PM
MONICA HUGGET
Music of J.S. Bach performed on Baroque Violin

Monica Huggett was born in London, the fifth of seven children taking up the violin at age six. Her talent became apparent quickly and, by the age sixteen, she entered the Royal Academy of Music as a student of Manoug Parikian. Although she did well winning several prizes, she was not entirely comfortable with her instrument until given a baroque violin to try.  She was immediately won over by the mellow quality and became a fervent champion of the baroque violin!

From age seventeen, Monica has earned her living solely as a violinist and artistic director and currently as the newly-appointed (first) artistic director of the Juilliard School's Historical Performance Program. In the intervening four decades, she co-founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra with Ton Koopman; founded her own London-based ensemble Sonnerie; worked with Christopher Hogwood at the Academy of Ancient Music; with Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert; and toured the United States in concert with James Galway.

Monica's discography numbers in the hundreds, and among her recent prizes are the 1997 Editor's Choice award, Gramophone magazine, for J.S. Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin; the Vantaa Baroque Energy Prize (Finland), 2005; and Gramophone's Best Instrumental Recording Award, for Heinrich Biber's Violin Sonatas, 2002. The latest CD release from Sonnerie "Music for a Young Prince" early versions of the J.S. Bach Four Orchestral Suites, won a Diapason d'Or in June 2009.

Alongside her work at Juilliard Monica continues as artistic director of both the Irish Baroque Orchestra, and the Portland (Oregon) Baroque Orchestra.

It is will great joy that Monica Huggett joins the Our Lady of Fatima Bach Festival and will be performing several works by J.S. Bach on Baroque Violon (unaccompanied) which will include works like:

The Partita in E major BWV 1006  
The Sonata in G minor BWV 1001  
The Gigue and Chaconne from Partita No 2 in D minor BWV1004
