Concert: Penelope Spencer plays Bach Trio Sonatas


Come and join us for a beautiful baroque concert morning at King's Place and then enjoy lunch beside the Regent's Canal.

Part of the Bach Unwrapped series of concerts, these trio sonatas are are some of the most beautiful and important chamber music of the baroque era. BWV 1037, is now attributed to Goldberg - the elusive child prodigy and pupil of Bach who absorbed his teacher's style so completely that his work has been wrongly attributed to Bach for many years. BW1036 - the powerful, but rarely heard trio sonata for two violins - is now attributed to C. Ph. E. Bach.

This programme culminates in one of Bach’s most powerful and sublime creations - the trio sonata from the Music Offering. For this, Penelope Spencer's ensemble Realm of Music is joined by renowned Canadian flautist Claire Guimond (pictured).

Trio in G for flute, violin and basso continuo, BWV 1038
Trio in C for two violins and basso continuo, BWV 1037
Trio in D minor for two violins and basso continuo, BWV 1036
Trio sonata from the Musical Offering, BWV 1079

Claire Guimond plays flauto traverso, Penelope Spencer and Jorge Jiménez violin, Jonathan Byers cello and David Roblou harpsichord.
