In 1747 the aging Johann Sebastian Bach visited the cosmopolitan court of
the young and highly musical King Frederick the Great of Prussia. This was
the catalyst for the composition of his great late work Musical Offering
dedicated to the king. This programme explores the contrasting styles of
Frederick’s court composers including Bach’s son Carl Philipp Emmanuel
and the king himself. It culminates with Bach’s monumental Trio Sonata
from Musical Offering. The magnificent eighteenth century Gothic interior of
Strawberry Hill House (built around the same time) provides an
atmospheric backdrop.

2015 marks the 300th anniversary of the death of the ‘Sun King’, Louis XIV
(r.1643 – 1715) and the accession of his grandson Louis XV (r.1715 – 1774).
These two long-lived-monarchs were contrasting characters and their
respective reigns forged very different paths for France. The former
stabilized the country after a long period of religious strife and saw a golden
age of French culture; the latter overseeing the rise of the decorative rococo
style, but also a gradual decline in the prestige of the monarchy, which
ultimately led to the French Revolution. This concert explores the music from
the reigns of both monarchs, with music by Dieupart, Elisabeth Jacquet de la
Guerre (whose 350th anniversary we celebrate this year), Leclair, Mondonville
and Corrette.
Duo Follia specializes in the rich repertoire of 17th and
18th century music for violin and basso continuo and, in
particular, the pioneering repertoire for violin and
obbligato harpsichord. Concert presentations include
informative and entertaining introductions drawing on
the diverse artistic, cultural and historic links with the
music.
venues. Recent concerts have included music by J S Bach
and his sons, music for the House of Hanover and
entertainments for the Ancien Régime at the Handel
House Museum, the Chapel Royal at Hampton Court
Palace and Garrick’s Temple to Shakespeare.

FOLLIA presents a varied programme of chamber music composed in the
two leading European capitals of the 18th century. Composers include natives
of each city, as well as some of the many foreign visitors and emigrés enticed
by the wealth and cosmopolitan atmospheres of Paris and London. These
include Telemann (a German visiting Paris), Geminiani (an Italian resident in
London) and Handel (a German who was the greatest composer in London).
