2014 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach, second son of JS Bach and godson of Georg Philipp Telemann.

In today’s concert, baroque violinist Rachel Podger is joined by musical friends to explore the contrasts and contradictions of his music. The Trio Sonata in C minor for two violins and bass, Wq 59/1, particularly demonstrates CPE Bach’s forward-thinking approach.

Also on the programme is the Trio Sonata in A major, Wq 146, Violin Sonata in C minor, Wq 78 and the E minor Keyboard Sonata, Wq 59/1.
