    To Touch the Heart: Passacaglia Trio

    7.30pm

    Verdala Palace, Rabat, Malta

    Part of the Valletta Baroque Festival 2022

    Music from the Royal courts of Prussia for flute, viola da gamba and harpsichord.

    Centred around the dramatic and touching works of CPE Bach, a composer who audaciously broke free of the conventions of earlier generations, our programme also includes contributions by three talented women – notably King Frederick’s cultivated sisters Wilhelmina von Bayreuth and Anna Amalia; and by Wilhelmina’s remarkable young Italian protégée, Anna Bon, fresh from training at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. Like Emanuel Bach, all of these highly respected women composed music for flute and harpsichord – adding depth to our understanding of the cultural achievements of this remarkable era.
