The Well-Tempered Consort

Johann Sebastian Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier is one of the most important works of Baroque piano literature. In its programme, the PHANTASM viol consort gets inside Bach’s head, not only to grasp the numerous references to arias, concertos, dances and sonatas in his glorious polyphony, but also to engage as instrumentalists with the amazing variety of characters, styles and emotions hidden beneath the surface of the notes. Even those already familiar with this keyboard repertoire will be amazed at how the clarity of the lines, played on the viols, seem to lead to entirely new works from Bach’s genius pen. Between 11 and 13 July 2022, the ensemble will be guests at the Palau de la Música Orfeó Català and at the Kammermusikfest Lockenhaus.
