THE BACH-ABEL CONCERTS
WITH ANTON NEL
February 5 & 6, 2022 | Redeemer Presbyterian Church
Johann Christian Bach (the youngest son of J. S. Bach) and his friend and musical collaborator Carl Friedrich Abel, instituted this enormously popular concert series in London in 1764, five years after the death of Handel.
Although many famous composers, such as Haydn, were featured in the series, La Follia will focus on the music of Abel and JC Bach (the latter was passionately admired by Mozart).
Anton Nel is featured in two concertos.
