    Tom Daun – Rural Dance Music in Baroque times

    Sat, 10 April 2021 @ 4:00 pm Mon, 12 April 2021 @ 5:15 pm BST

    Only a few years ago a German music scholar discovered fascinating music manuscripts containing dance tunes of the late 18th century. Johann Dahlhoff was a village musician in Westphalia who wrote down hundreds of popular tunes of his time. The repertoire ranges from elegant Baroque Bourrées to stomping rural dances. Many of the melodies are related to French, Dutch, Danish and English tunes of the same time. And all of them sound gorgeous on harp.

    Three sessions:

    • Saturday 10th April, 16:00-17:15
    • Sunday 11th April, 16:00-17:15
    • Monday 12th April, 16:00-17:15
