Bach- keeping it in the family.

juli 2 @ 11:00 - 12:00


Camerata Øresund is the second of three Danish ensembles visiting the West Cork Chamber Music Festival this year. Their first programme  focuses on the extensive Bach family. Bach himself fathered twenty children of whom half survived into adulthood. Johann Bernhard was a second cousin most of whose music has not survived. Wilhelm Friedmann was his oldest surviving son and a distinguished composer with a huge output of compositions. It is thought that most of his father’s famous keyboard Exercises were initially composed for Friedmann – and contrary to legend the Goldberg Variations were also written for him. This concert gives us the opportunity to compare the works of two family members alongside the Master himself.
