Bartosz Woroch Violin

The young Polish violinist Bartosz Woroch is an exciting talent with a fast-growing reputation.

His programme of music by three of the greatest composers for violin alone begins with one of the peerless masterpieces for the instrument, and follows it with music by composers who were profoundly influenced by Bach’s example.

In Holy Trinity’s intimate candlelit surroundings
this short recital is the perfect nightcap after the rich feast of romanticism at nearby St Mary’s.

“ There was fire and vehemence and Woroch’s playing was always full of life and purpose.”
The Strad

“ Intensely poetic”

Duration 1 hour approx

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
