All about the Berlin classics

This is such a great idea and a good evening out even if classical music isn’t top of your list. If it is, you’ll really enjoy it for the originality. It is beautifully played music along with brilliant speakers, in this case Norman Lebrecht (cultural commentator and an award-winning novelist, the latest is Why Mahler? and he also wrote The Game of Opposites) who will talk about the music and its place in time in between the tunes. The music  will include pieces by C.P.E. Bach, QuantzFrederick II (‘the Great’) of Prussia and J.S. Bach’s Trio Sonata from The Musical Offering. Lebrecht will discuss what it takes to be a music capital and how Berlin went from garrison town to cultural hub. The history is more complicated than it seems … where was JS Bach when Germany really needed him? It is at the 20th Century Theatre, 24th January, 7.30pm and tickets are £25 which includes wine eventbrite It is all organised the Aspect Foundation  aspectfoundation
