Book Now

Thu 10 Jan, 7.00pm

Santa Teresa Convent, Cartagena, Colombia

English Baroque Soloists

Kati Debretzeni - violin
Kristian Bezuidenhout - harpsichord

After many years focusing on Bach’s vocal works, we will perform two purely instrumental programmes in the beautiful chapel of Cartagena’s old Santa Teresa convent on 9 and 10 January 2019.

Kati Debretzeni, the leader of the EBS, will be the soloist in three violin concertos, including the rarely-heard D minor (better known in its later version as a harpsichord concerto); and the South African keyboard player Kristian Bezuidenhout - a regular collaborator with the MCO ensembles who joined the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique two years ago for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 - will perform two of Bach’s harpsichord concertos. The virtuosic Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, and Orchestral Suite No. 2, with its famous concluding Badinerie, complete the programmes.
