Like many musicians, Julian Perkins from Sounds Baroque is finding creative ways to cope with the necessary isolation. He is introducing a regular Bach at 9 recital series, starting at 9.00pm (UK-time) every day except Mondays and featuring Perkins playing a Bach prelude and fugue from the Well-Tempered Clavier on the clavichord, reputedly Bach's favourite keyboard instrument.

And from Friday 3 April 2020, there will also be Duets at 10, at 10pm (UK time) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, when Emma Abbate and Julian Perkins will introduce and perform keyboard duets by composers including J. C. Bach, Clementi, Mozart, Weber and Dodgson.

Full details from the Sounds Baroque YouTube channel.

Those who wish to support artists whose income has been decimated, can click on the link on the top right of the channel page, and proceeds will be divided equally between the charity Help Musicians and each performer.
