Chamber Music in the Bush – Sweelinck to J.S. Bach: Harpsichord Recital
27 August 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm AEST
Chamber Music in the Bush (in an intimate and secluded bushland setting) proudly presents Concert Two in the Series: Sweelinck to J.S. Bach: Harpsichord Recital
This harpsichord recital explores northern European keyboard music from around 1600 to 1750. The relatively little known Sweelinck, composer of a wide range of keyboard music ranging from the purely delightful to the seriously contrapuntal, deserves to be known as the father of Nothern European keyboard music. He was a major influence upon important composers such as Reincken, Buxtehude Muffat and J.S. Bach.
