Quartets for Karl Freiderich Abel: Johann Christian Bach's Opus 8


Feb 15, 2019
06:30 PM until 07:30 PM


Barefoot's February Concert features a West Coast Premiere, the original version of Johann Christian Bach's Opus 8 quartets. This set of 6 lovely quartets was published in an edition for violin, viola, flute or oboe, and continuo. Recent research has revealed that the original scoring was for viola da gamba rather than viola, and that the first performer of that part was Bach's great friend Karl Friedrich Abel, one of the last of the great viola da gamba virtuosi.

This performance features David Morris playing the part of Abel. The original harpsichord, violin, flute, and oboe players are unknown, but our present day substitutes are local stars you know and love.
