Programme :

“From father to son…

Not easy to be the son or daughter of Jean-Sébastien… Never mind, several of his children have made Baroque music evolve and have gone down in history. Carl Philipp Emanuel, an illustrious witness to the pre-classical period, left us three magnificent cello concertos. One of the particularities of the period was that certain instruments were considered interchangeable, so the flute will also be part of this concert full of joy and virtuosity!

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714 – 1788)
