The Bach Players at the Octagon Chapel, Norwich 10 July

The Bach Players at the Octagon Chapel, Norwich
Thursday 10 July 2014 7.30pm

From Venice to Hamburg

‘Seventeenth-century Jazz’
Italian and German music in the ‘Stylus Phantasticus’
works by Schmelzer, Marini, Froberger and others

Unusual music for unusual instruments!

A summer concert of instrumental music presents a fascinating programme exploring seventeenth-century links between Italy and Germany, in the exuberant style known as Stylus Phantasticus.

Many of the composers are not well known, but it is wonderfully imaginative music and you know by now the Bach Players’ knack of putting together marvellous programmes of top quality lesser known works. Nothing dusty or straight-laced here!

It is also a chance to discover the exciting sounds of the cornetto, sackbut and dulcian. The concert has been entitled ‘seventeenth-century jazz’ because in the course of the tutti pieces each instrument also has a virtuosic solo demonstrating the skill of the player and the special sound of the instrument.

Do not miss this uplifting concert, warm sounds and catchy rhythms uniting to create a perfect summer entertainment, with drinks in the Octagon garden at the interval.
