Fantastical and far-fetched

Bedern Hall, Bedern
Friday 11 July 10:30am

Adults £7.50 (includes coffee)  SOLD OUT 

An introduction to the mind of CPE Bach 
(Ticket includes coffee on arrival)

That bedazzled assessment of the music of JS Bach's second and most talented son Carl Philipp Emanuel seems no less appropriate now than when it was made in the 18th century, making it all the more of a pity that so few people really know it today. York Early Music Festival Artistic Adviser, Lindsay Kemp, and flautist Jennifer Cohen offer the chance to get acquainted with one of the most important composers of the 18th century ahead of encounters in Events 7, 9, 19 and 26.
