6 Sonatas and Partitas

for Solo Violin by Johann Sebastian Bach BWV 1001-1006

“Study Bach: there you will find everything.” – Johannes Brahms

AS SEEN ON

Boost your violin skills with Bach

and it makes you feel good 🙂

The six sonatas and partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach guided me through my teenage insecurities, warmed my heart as a lonely single in my twenties and today they keep me sane as a mother of three young kids.

Bach’s sonatas and partitas are a very special part of my life.

I want to share this joy with YOU!

I’m honored to collaborate with concert violinist Antal Zalai. His romantic traditional interpretation of Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin is one of my favorites and I’m looking forward to learn from him together with YOU!

Exclusively for Violin Lounge Antal creates an enormous video curriculum covering ALL the technical and expressive skills required to play Bach’s sonatas and partitas beautifully.

This course will be ever growing as students are welcome to send in videos for feedback, ask questions and new lesson videos will be added.

Zlata Brouwer

Violin Teacher

I started studying the easy movements of Bach’s sonatas and partitas as a child. This means I’m studying these monumental works for over twenty years. Every time I come back to them I discover something new. I let some movements rest and pick up other movements. 

Playing Bach cleans up my violin technique, my heart and my mind.

These crazy times call for a community of Bach lovers. Let’s learn from each other, exchange ideas and support us on whatever level you are.

If you play solo, whether it’s on stage or for friends, Bach’s sonatas and partitas are the go-to repertoire. It’s great to have them in your repertoire.

Antal Zalai

Concert Violinist

“An exceptional violinist, who has perfect technique, beautiful large tone, real musical finesse and maturity as well as noble personality,” wrote legendary Russian violinist Igor Oistrakh of his colleague, Antal Zalai, who is fifty years of his junior, and who is unique among his fellow violinists with his characteristic tone, mature musical phrasing and elegant virtuosity.

Besides touring the world soloing with top orchestras, Antal made beautiful recordings of all 24 Paganini caprices and Bach’s sonatas and partitas.

Zlata is honored that Antal is willing to collaborate on this enormous Bach project. Antal teaches the core curriculum and breaks down exactly how to play every single movement of the 6 Sonatas and Partitas.

Vivien Hoffman

Concert Violinist

Vivien is a rare gem: an international concert violinist with a pure and romantic interpretation style, who knows how to break everything she learned from great masters down into easy to understand lessons and step by step exercises.

Vivien will be coaching Four Seasons students in feedback videos.

Bio:

Vivien sets herself apart and makes a distinct mark in the music world by an immense versatility. Besides a highly successful international career as a concert violinist she is also an extremely sought after teacher.

Vivien Hoffman started violin lessons at the age of five and began her studies at the Universität der Künste in Berlin at the age of nine. She continued her studies with Ruggiero Ricci at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and at the Hochschule für Musik ‚Hanns Eisler’ with Professor Werner Scholz.

Questions you might have…

Is my playing level advanced enough to join?

Although the Chaconne is known as the Mount Everest of violin playing, there are many movements inside the sonatas and partitas that are possible to play with little experience on the violin. Some are in first position.

Check out this piece of sheet music:

and this:

bach double excerpt

Do they look doable for you? Welcome to the course :). You may not be able to play all movements, but you have lifetime access, so you can enjoy the difficult ones later in your violin journey.

I already have a violin teacher. Will this course interfere?

In contrary! In my violin journey I’ve had different teachers and followed various courses and masterclasses. This has been very valuable to me. Your teacher will be happy that you do this deep dive in Bach’s sonatas and partitas as it will benefit all aspects of your violin playing.

I’m very busy! Is it wise to join now?

You have lifetime access to the course and can follow along at your own pace. As a mom of three young children I know that life can get in the way, so no sweat if you take your time. This course is an investment you can enjoy whenever you want.

Do I need a baroque violin and/or bow?

No, this course is not about historically informed performance (HIP). It’s about learning the piece on a normal violin in a traditional romantic interpretation. We will honor the urtext and the meaning of Bach.

Is sheet music included in the course?

Yes, sheet music downloads are included in the program. We use dynamical sheet music with the Soundslice software, so you can play along with Antal’s performance at any speed. All the sheet music is printable.

What will I get exactly when I enroll and how does it work?

In January 2022 all videos by Antal Zalai on all movements will be released. After that Zlata will continuously develop more curriculum. Also feedback videos with students will be made. We make this course together!

What technical skills are required to follow this online course?

Not so techy? No worries! If you can watch my YouTube videos, you can follow along this course. Also we’re happy to help if you get stuck.

How much access do I get to the teacher team for individual guidance?

You can ask questions by e-mail and send in videos of your playing for feedback. There are no 1 on 1 live lessons included in the tuition.

Can you learn to play the violin online?

Yes! Zlata has been teaching online and offline over 10 years and has seen time after time how students can breakthroughs online. You can access your teachers and the materials 24/7.

When do I get access? How long?

You have lifetime access and get future updates and additions at no extra charge.
