C P E Bach Flute Concerto in A H438 Wq. 168
J S Bach Cantata No. 209: Non sa che sia dolore BWV 209 (BC G50)

The consort of baroque specialists from the leading London conservatoires is joined by two outstanding young soloists.

Our annual exploration of J S Bach’s cantatas continues with the unusual Cantata 209, unusual for being a secular work set to an Italian text describing the departure of a young man for military service. Its highly ornamental flute solo resonates appropriately with the Flute Concerto by Bach’s son, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, born 300 years ago.

Supported by The Worshipful Company of Musicians.

This concert is part of the Young Artists Series showcasing new and emerging talent in the world of classical music. The series is presented in partnership with City Music Society.

Free admission; no advance booking required
Late entry will be permitted during a suitable pause in the performance
