Early Music Concerts 2010-2011: (US) BACH IN MARCH : Bach Birthday Festival 2011 (2011 March 26)

In 1762, John Christian Bach, youngest son of the old master, Johann Sebastian, journeyed to London for a lucrative position with the King’s Theatre. Shortly thereafter, he was appointed Music Master to Queen Charlotte Sophia (wife of “Mad” King George III) and the Royal Family. With a few close musical friends, the "London Bach" formed an ensemble to entertain Her Majesty in her private chambers: The Queen’s Chamber Band.

It is in this spirit of intimate, personal performance that Elaine Comparone, “a harpsichordist with few equals” (Donal Henahan, The New York Times), has successfully recreated The Queen’s Chamber Band with nine distinguished soloists, whose mastery of both solo repertory and chamber music thrills audiences worldwide.
