This is our twentieth anniversary year: we played our first concerts, in Oxford and London, in May 1997, and the whole story is revealed on our diary archive page. This year’s concerts in our Norwich and London series reflect this history. In March we are reprising a programme built around Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater; in the summer we give a concert of French music – a theme that has come to the fore for us; and we finish in the autumn with an all-Bach programme and some of his most glorious music.
We will issue two CDs this year. The first of them, Musical offering, will be released in the spring; the second, Bach and before, will be isssued towards the end of the year. You can subscribe to Bach and before by becoming a Friend of the Bach Players for 2017: a subscription form can be dowloaded here. Both CDs are now announced on our recordings page.
