18th century chamber music combinations

The programme will show off a variety of 18th century chamber music combinations, and it includes the well-known set of variations on the La Folia theme for solo violin by Corelli, a trio sonata for two violins and continuo by a composer whose music is not often heard in South Africa, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg (1727–1756), as well as the evergreen Pachelbel canon.

In keeping with CTB’s goal to create work of artistic integrity following the Historically Informed Performance (HIP) approach, this concert will be played on instruments appropriate to the period of the music.

Music by these composers can be heard in the concert – Corelli, Uccellini, Goldberg, Telemann, Handel and Pachelbel.
