Concert Series:Follia - Evening in the Palace of Reason

9 July 2015 7:30 pm  

In 1747 the aging Johann Sebastian Bach visited the cosmopolitan court of the young and highly musical King Frederick the Great of Prussia. This was the catalyst for the composition of his great late work Musical Offering dedicated to the king.

Evening in the Palace of Reason explores the contrasting styles of Frederick’s court composers including Bach’s son Carl Philipp Emmanuel and the king himself. It culminates with Bach’s monumental Trio Sonata from Musical Offering. The magnificent eighteenth century gothic interior of Strawberry Hill offers the most atmospheric backdrop.
