A celebration of the influential works of the Bach family. Concerto Cristfori take you on a journey through time to explore the music of these great masters. The compositional nature of their music varies greatly as their distinctive styles echo the cultural and social cadence of their time. While JS Bach’s music is steeped in the flavour of the Baroque period, his two sons blazed a trail to the Classical era.
