A father and his three musical sons. Meet the incredible Bach family at this concert.

Enjoy a journey through time and wildly different musical styles. Hear, in the music of CPE Bach, the compelling story of a gifted child rebelling against the legacy of his famous father.

Though a tight-knit group, the Bach family managed to compose wildly different styles of music to lasting international acclaim, from the bounce and thrust of Johannes Sebastian to the slow, song-like structures of Wilhelm Friedemann. This concert presents a range of their works. It considers how, as a father, you balance a burgeoning music career with educating a huge family, and how, as a son, you acknowledge your roots while embracing the new sounds of a changing world.
