Take a journey through the incredible world of Bach’s keyboard music in three afternoons of discussion and performance.
Throughout his life, Bach wrote more consistently for keyboard than for any other medium, allowing us to trace the entire development of his musical language through this repertoire. His fame as a keyboard virtuoso led to the wide publication of works such as The Well-tempered Clavier, which became a formative influence on subsequent generations of composers.
The sessions are presented by composer Julian Philips alongside pianist Laura Roberts, guest speakers and performers from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
