Bach – Toccata in C Minor, BWV 911;
Bach – Toccata in G Minor, BWV 915;
Mendelssohn – String Quintet No 2 in B flat major , Op. 87;
Fauré – Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 15.

The Festival music programme begins with the first of the three great musical “B”s - Bach. One of the other two will also feature later in the Festival! A selection of Tocattas will disperse the weekday cares. Mendelssohn’s mature string quintet brings us into the Romantic world, which, after the interval, evolves into the atmospheric post-Romantic piano quartet of Fauré.
