Part of 2019/20 season

Please note that finish times are approximate and subject to change

Rediscover the magic of Bach’s well-loved First Cello Suite and the tender and expressive sonata for viola da gamba, here performed on viola, violin and organ.

This January, we explore the intricate textures, complex shapes and irresistible melodic lines of Bach's chamber music. With compositions that range from witty and joyful to meditative and metaphysical, Bach distilled the depths of philosophy and emotion into his works throughout his life, frequently transforming these themes into highly personal works. In this series, listen up-close and explore the magnetic charm of Bach’s music in all its elaborate detail.

Change of Programme

Please note that, in a change to early listings, Bach's Sonata for viola da gamba in G major will be performed in place of Gamba Sonata No 1 in D major.
