Join the Bach family in a very special musical soiree.  From the father, Johann Sebastian, we hear a piece for viola da gamba, an instrument which already in Bach’s time was slowly going out of fashion. The sons, Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christoph Friedrich, take part with a virtuoso harpsichord sonata and a galant sonata for cello and basso continuo.  To round off the programme we also hear some arias which Johann Sebastian had included in the Notebook for his wife Anna Magadalena, a talented soprano.
