Bach 48 Preludes and Fugues – Linda Nicholson and Daniel Cook
Nobody really knows what instrument J S Bach wrote his 48 Preludes and Fugues for. So over a day, we will present them on four different instruments. Starting at St Mary the Virgin, Linda Nicholson, one of the foremost keyboard players specialising in the performance of baroque, classical and early music, plays her selection on the clavichord and the harpsichord. After the performance the audience will then have lunch in the Star Inn.
After refuelling, the Festival Bus will transport the audience to St Leonard’s Church, Hythe, where Daniel Cook, Master of the Choristers and Organist of Durham Cathedral, will continue this fascinating musical journey. His selection will be played on the piano and the organ. After this concert tea and cake will be on sale in St Leonard’s Church before the Festival Bus returns the audience to their cars at St Mary in the Marsh.
At the beginning of each concerts there will be a short talk about the church, as well as, throughout each concert the performers will explain their choices of both music and instruments.
