Thoroughbass performs music by three members of the Bach family in Bach in Three, illustrating the difference just one generation makes.
Johann Sebastian and sons Carl Philip Emmanuel and Johann Christian, each separated by twenty years, demonstrate diverging styles, tap into the trends of the day and display their own unique personalities. This program demonstrates the intricate and abstruse style of the great JS, the expressive and eccentric one of Emmanuel, and the lyrically lovely one of Christian in sonatas for various combinations of strings, all played on period instruments.
The performers: Stephen Freeman (violin), Shaun Warden (violin), Shaun Ng (viola da gamba) and Diana Weston (harpsichord)
Tickets: Adults $35 | Concession $30 (available online or at the door – booking recommended)
