You didn’t know that the late David Bowie played the viol? This was him in a former life, perhaps, as Jean Baptiste Antoine Forqueray. We’re going to play his three remaining pieces for three bass viols, recently discovered, at Kings Place next Friday. And they are just part of a cornucopia of wonderful baroque music, some of which we haven’t played before, such as Legrenzi’s two remarkable sonatas ‘per viole di gamba o simile’, or Charpentier’s ‘Concert pour les violes’. Finish off with the great J. S. Bach Passacaglia, and you have a pretty exciting programme – well, in my opinion, anyway.
