Discover rich and strange new musical worlds in this superlunary concert featuring AHE and Guest Director Chad Kelly, a string orchestra and keyboard tribute to one of the most original musical minds of the enlightenment, C.P.E. Bach. The program features Emanuel’s delightfully strange Cello Concerto in A major and his brilliant G major Symphony. It also includes Benda's stunning F minor Keyboard Concerto and an occasionally downright silly suite, nicknamed La Bizarre, by his avuncular godfather Telemann.

Formidable UK keyboardist Chad Kelly has worked closely with the likes of Rachel Podger, Trevor Pinnock and John Eliot Gardiner. He joins us as Guest Director and struts his stuff in a concerto by C.P.E.’s contemporary Georg Benda. This program of heavenly music from changing times is a perfect way to see out the old year and ring in the new.
