MUSICAL PORTRAITS

17 September @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEST

Free

Music of exceptional originality by formidably gifted masters of the keyboard: François Couperin, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre – French harpsichordist of extraordinary talent favoured with the patronage of Louis XIV, and one of the earliest eminent woman composers.
