The Melbourne Musicians directed by Frank U.Pam play music by J.S.Bach and his four very talented sons. Swiss-Australian Bridget Bolliger plays CPE Bach's beautiful Flute Concerto in A major and soprano Sarah Lobegeiger de Rodriguez sings two arias from JS Bach's popular Coffee Cantata.
The first one includes a virtuoso flute obbligato (played by Bridget) which depicts the aroma of the coffee wafting into the air.

The rest of the program is made up of a typically quirky work by WF Bach, his Sinfonia in F major, a powerful and rarely heard Sinfonia in D minor by JCF Bach and a delightfully Mozartian Sinfonietta in C major by JC Bach.

The ambience and acoustics at St Johns Southgate are ideal for this small chamber orchestra and the musicians can be seen and heard from anywhere in the hall. Ticket prices are considerably less than those for other similar ensembles.

This concert can be easily enjoyed by young and old!
