Instruments of Time and Truth

Trio Sonatas Transformed

Abendmusik by Bach and Buxtehude

Tickets £18

In 1705, the young Johann Sebastian Bach’s famed walk from Arnstadt to Lübeck to attend the evening concerts (Abendmusiken) directed by the old master organist-composer, Dietrich Buxtehude, brought about one of the most important connections in music history.

Inspired by experimentation and transformation, this programme reveals Bach and Buxtehude’s thirst for colour and texture, featuring Sonatas for different combinations of instruments in original and new versions.

Catherine Latham - Recorder/Voice Flute
Rachel Byrt - Viola/Violin
Susanne Heinrich -Viola da Gamba
Christopher Bucknall - Organ/Harpsichord
