Gustav Leonhardt at St John’s

We are very pleased to announce that Gustav Leonhardt has accepted our invitation to play at St John’s Downshire Hill next year, on Saturday 28 April.

It will be a chance to hear a master playing in our home church. The intimate, noble interior of St John’s, and its splendid acoustics, make it an entirely appropriate venue. He will give a recital of music of his choice, mainly from the seventeenth century in Europe. Gustav Leonhardt most definitely needs no introduction, but we can add a footnote to his curriculum vitae – that, with his wife Marie Leonhardt-Amsler, he is a patron of The Bach Players. Tickets for this concert, and for all our concerts in 2012, will go on sale early in the new year.
