Thoroughbass presents Trendsetters, a concert which explores how music steps from the old to the new, from the age of the harpsichord to that of the piano.
What is now old was once new. What happened to music when the piano came on the scene? Was the new technology frowned upon or embraced?
The program includes Carl Philip Emanuel Bach, ‘Sonata for viola da gamba and continuo,’ Johann Christian Bach and Ignaz Pleyel.
The performers: Shaun Ng (viola da gamba), Tara Hashambhoy (violin), Diana Weston (harpsichord, piano)
