A coincidental meeting returned him to the international concert scene. In 1954, Arthur Rubinstein played a concert in Mexico City. Szeryng paid him a visit and ended up playing Bach for him in Rubinstein's hotel room the night after the concert. The refinement and intensity of Szeryng's playing hit the pianist like a bolt of lightning. In the following three years, he became one of the most sought-after violinists in the world, respected particularly as a performer of Bach and winning numerous awards. He died in 1988, and his gravestone in Monaco was engraved with the closing bars of Bach's Chaconne.
Paying tribute to the great Polish musician's legacy are two young violinists: Hungary's Kristóf Baráti and Poland's Jakub Jakowicz will alternate in playing Johann Sebastian Bach's bible for violinists, the three solo sonatas and three solo partitas.
Commissioned by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music programme and the international POLSKA 100 programmes celebrating the centenary of the declaration of Polish independence; financed as part of the NIEPODLEGŁA 2017-2021 of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
