ThoroughBass: The Bach-Abel London Series

10 March 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm AEDT


Tickets: $35

“The small is great when it is written naturally..” Leopold Mozart, of JC Bach

For nearly 20 years Johann Christian Bach and his friend Carl Friedrich Abel ran a subscription series of concerts in London, contributing as players – Abel as a virtuoso gambist, Christian as a harpsichordist – at the same time supplying a steady stream of new music. Christian’s music bears very little resemblance to his father’s complex abstruse style. He was the master melody-maker, one who was admired and emulated by young Mozart amongst many others.

Shaun Ng (viola da gamba), Stephen Freeman (violin), Shaun Warden (violin) and Diana Weston (harpsichord).
