J.C. Bach — Mozart’s Real Musical Father

Thursday March 18 @ 11:00 am PDT

Virtual Event
EVENT DESCRIPTION

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s relationship with his dad Leopold was complicated. While Leopold certainly ‘schooled’ the young Wolfy, Mozart considered Johann Christian Bach (son of J.S.) to be his ‘true musical father’ — their relationship was on a deep musical level, full of mutual love and respect. Later in life, Mozart often paid tribute to him by borrowing themes or actual bits of music. Keyboard virtuosos Alexandra Nepomnyashchaya and Richard Egarr return to the historic Schuilkerk de Hoop in Amsterdam to celebrate that deep understanding and connection by playing two sonatas by each of these masters.
