August Concert Series, Episode 1: Music by Handel, Abel, and J.C. Bach with Christopher Bucknall and Jon Rees
MUSIC, CULTURE, AND EMPIRE IN 18TH CENTURY LONDON
We're delighted to share with you the project we've been working on over the past few weeks, "Music, Culture, and Empire in 18th Century London", a collaboration with the University of Warwick. Join us online every Tuesday evening in August for an in-depth look into the fascinating, diverse, and often precarious lives of musicians and their patrons in 18th-century London. We've brought together a wide variety of music from a range of familiar and unfamiliar contexts to reflect on the changing nature of music-making throughout history.
The videos will premiere at 7pm each Tuesday - so you can join us then for the conversation on Youtube if you like, and they'll stay up permanently after that. The schedule should look something like this, although please be aware that the content of the videos is subject to change (some of the recordings are weather-dependent!)
