Our YouTube series Back to Bach reveals how OBS musicians have returned to the works of JS Bach during lockdown. In this second episode, Yu-Wei Hu (flute) and Johan Löfving (theorbo) explore the Master of melody and harmony.
Solo works for unaccompanied flute were extremely rare during the 18th century as it was assumed that flute players could not produce harmony alone, and without harmony all musical sense was lost. However, Bach’s pioneering work of a four-movement dance suite in a minor for solo flute paved the way for Telemann’s Twelve Fantasies as well as flute works by his son, CPE Bach.
This concert will be a deferred broadcast of a live performance, created for lockdown. A YouTube link will be posted on this page shortly in advance of the event.
