One of Luther’s priorities was that music should be played in the home as well as in church. Following in the Reformer’s footsteps, Bach also made music at home with his family and students. In this specially curated programme by Anthony Robson, members of Steinitz Bach Players pay homage to Luther and Bach as Masters and Servants, introduce and perform chamber and solo harpsichord works by Bach and by his close friend the prolific composer Georg Philipp Telemann. whose 250th anniversary falls this year. Once again we are in the intimate setting of the 18th century-style Salon at Wax Chandlers Hall.
