Saturday 10th November

Concert: Flanders Recorder Quartet
17:00 - 19:00

Reclaiming Bach for the recorder - with pre-concert interview

Johann Sebastian Bach is without doubt the greatest musical genius that Western culture has produced. Bach composed relatively little for the recorder. This is the only error that we, as recorder fanatics, can perceive in this genius of a composer. In this programme FRQ bring you arrangements of beautifully expressive chorals, lively Italianate concerti, highly inventive preludes and fugues, and a monumental passacaglia. Four personalities, four individuals melt together, as it were, into one player...
