Goûts Réunis

In this program, Bert Honig and Johan Hofmann introduce a fair couple of composers who let themselves to be influenced by each other and by their common musical heritage. F.Couperin shows his admiration for A.Corelli in a most musical way, not forgetting his french roots. Whilst G.Ph.Telemann uses a more italian palet which he colours with french elements. J.S.Bach on the other hand, makes a sonata into a concerto!

This way, all of them pay hommage to each other, and open up new perspectives towards their own style.
