The performance was filmed at the Colnaghi Gallery in London. The director is Jonathan Berman, the orchestral conductor. British-German violinist and violist Max Baillie is sought after as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral leader in the UK and abroad. His musical life reflects his interest in the cross-pollination of musical styles, having led Bjork’s string orchestra in the Royal Albert Hall, recorded with guitar maestro John Williams, and dueted with Bobby McFerrin in New York. From folk tunes in the Welsh hills to major festivals across the world, Max leads a chameleonic life embracing classical, improvisation, and appearances on stages big and small. ‍Historiae de Divini // Tales of the Divine is part of FOUND SPACES, a programme of online events including the premieres of 4 new digital concerts all made for the screen.
