Bach, Scots & Irish in Harmony
Stan Kornel, Monika Kornel, Hans-Dieter Michatz

Music from the BACH father & son - Johann Sebastian and Wilhelm Friedemann and music by Turlough O’Carolan, Thomas Roseingrave, Burk Thumoth, James Oswald, Nathaniel Gow and William McGibbon in a programme that includes a rarely performed collection of baroque music from Ireland and Scotland. The rhythm of Irish jigs, sorrow and charismatic harmony performed on prominent period instruments – fiddle, flute and harpsichord.

The Sydney Consort is one of Australia’s most energetic music ensembles devoted to early music of the 17th and 18th century, as well as contemporary Australian music on period instruments. Attractive programmed performances show their absolute passion about the true Baroque. Their mission is to provide excellent, historically informed music to a wide audience and to ‘revive’ forgotten music and works by obscure composers, unpublished scores and rarely performed compositions that by all means deserve to be presented.
