Bach to the piano

Harpsichordist Virginia Black is returning to her roots as a pianist, and having played Bach's keyboard concertos on the harpsichord is now joining the Bristol Ensemble to perform them on the piano at King's Place on Thursday 18 January 2018. The concert features the concerto in A major BWV 1055 and the concerto in D minor BWV 1052, plus Haydn's Symphony no. 49 (La Passione) and Mozart's Divertimento in F major K138.

Black started playing the piano at the age of 7, and was given her first grand piano at age 12, a Bechstein which she still has and plays. Aged 17, she played Beethoven's Piano concerto no. 3 with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in Birmingham Town Hall, and went on to the Royal Academy of Music, studying both piano and harpsichord.
