Event description

Artistic Director and violinist Madeleine Easton is joined by two of Australia’s most lauded early music specialists Neal Peres Da Costa and Anton Baba to present a selection of Bach’s much loved obbligato sonatas for violin, harpsichord and viola da gamba.

In a rare departure from his usual compositional style, Bach took the existing baroque trio sonata form and utterly excelled himself, producing a new and innovative example of three-part contrapuntal writing showcasing the depth of his musical expression and the apparently inexhaustible inventive resources of his genius. They are nothing short of perfection.


Sonata No. 1 in B minor BWV 1014
Sonata No. 2 in A major BWV 1015
Sonata No. 3 in E major BWV 1016
Sonata No. 5 in F minor BWV 1018
Sonata No. 6 in G major BWV 1019
