Distinguished violinist and director Rachel Podger leads The English Concert in a feast of suites and concertos by JS Bach and his lifelong friend Telemann. Adding spice to the banquet, and continuing our family focus from the Buxton Festival, is Bach’s son (and Telemann’s godson) Carl Philipp Emanuel whose extraordinary symphonies were to challenge all the established conventions of the early 18th Century and point a way forward to the classical and romantic world of Beethoven and beyond.
