6. „HARPSICHORD AND PIANOFORTE – SO ALIKE AND STILL...”

Performers

Katarzyna Drogosz – pianoforte, Paulina Tkaczyk – harpsichord and pianoforte

Program

C.Ph.E. Bach, W.F. Bach, J.Ch. Bach, Ch.S. Binder

Pianoforte and harpsichord – „two brothers”, similar and yet so different... When they are in concert together, complementing each other and exchanging the timbres, they produce a remarkable effect. The programme of the concert, which comprises works by „the great Bach's” sons: Carl Philipp Emanuel, Wilhelm Friedmann and Johann Christian, as well as the Dresden composer ChristliebSiegmund Binder, shows how different styles – galant, rococo, Empfindsamkeit, Sturm und Drang and classical – penetrate one another. Thus it creates stylistic plurality and presents the „transitional period”, full of rapture and surprising twists, in an original way.
