When Carl Friedrich Abel met JC Bach in 1764, it was the beginning of a hugely productive collaboration and a true friendship. Both of them were composers, virtuosi, and impresarios of the highest calibre. They performed at the exclusive Bach-Abel concerts alongside the great composers of the day, caroused together as two of London’s most notorious drinkers, and were both members of Queen Charlotte’s Chamber Band.
Join us for an evening of of arias and instrumental pieces written by four of London’s most famous musical immigrants: Bach, Abel, Handel and Haydn. Expect virtuosity, verbosity and a lot of heavy drinking.
