The Bach Project

In 2001 Paul Robertson was awarded a fellowship by the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts [NESTA] to explore the musical, mathematical and spiritual foundations of Bach’s work for unaccompanied violin. In the Bach Project Workshops the source of inspiration, musical harmony and the authentic dances on which the music are based will provide a new perspective and insight into the nature and structure of Bach.  Participants will experience the complex inner voices of Bach through a variety of disciplines.
