Intense lyricism, dare-devil virtuosity, shocking harmonisation, wild chromaticism, passion, eloquence, emotion, drama and subtlety, are all hallmarks of CPE Bachâ€™s kaleidoscopic, often outrageous and bizarre masterworks.This programme offers concert-goers the opportunity to closely examine CPE Bachâ€™s indisputable influence on the music of his successors, Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven; to discover how he helped shape and bring about the Classical era, as we know it today.
“Joshua’s playing demonstrated that in the hands of an excellent musician the fortepiano’s qualities can enhance the work of the greatest composers”
“Her recital was distinguished not just by insightfull, intelligent musicianship, but also by the refinement and shading of the tone colours she extracted from her instrument”.
