Towards 2016

We brought our 2015 concert season to a close this month with ‘Bach’s library’ at Kenardington. Before this we performed ‘Bach and before’ in Norwich and London, and then spent three days recording the music for eventual CD release.

We are working now on concerts for 2016 at our Norwich and London homes. Dates, programmes, and line-ups will be announced on this website early in the new year. In the Diary pages we have already posted some dates of concerts at other venues. Another event of 2016 will be the release of our ninth CD, Venice to Hamburg. So, watch this website – and our Twitter account and Facebook page will give abbreviated news.

Keeping in touch

Friends of the Bach Players

In 2008 we started a subscription scheme as a way of supporting the production of our CDs. Last year we renamed and formalized this as Friends of The Bach Players, reflecting the larger purpose of the scheme. By becoming a Friend, you support both the concerts and the recordings – costly operations that always need subsidy from somewhere, and for which it is increasingly difficult to find help from the Arts Council. You will also become part of a community of people who enjoy and support what we do.

‘Bach’s library’ at Kenardington

November 2015 – News

Last Saturday evening we played the opening concert of a new venture, Saxon Shore Early Music. St Mary’s Church, Kenardington, at the edge of Romney Marsh in Kent, is a wonderful place for chamber music – we were privileged to be the first musicians to play in this series.
