Bach Akademie Australia: A Musical Offering
27 July @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST
Tickets: $40 – $60
Musicologists and audiences alike have long been fascinated by Bach’s Musical Offering. Its 16 movements are based on a theme given to Bach by Frederick the Great during a visit to the Prussian court in Potsdam. Frederick had been badgering his chief keyboard player, Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach, to lure his father to Potsdam for a visit for several years – until finally the “old Bach”, as he was by then known, could no longer politely resist. Bach was then 62 years old, only three years from his death. Subsequently, the long trip from Leipzig would be his last journey.
