Bs and Bees – Zarek Trio

26 October
7:30 pm
- 9:30 pm
£16.00 £5 under 18s

Baroque music by Bach and Buxtehude with a decisive nod towards a world that inspires and sustains us.

Performing on period instruments, these rising stars of early music have a passion to share their sound, and the thrill of live performance, with audiences everywhere – the connoisseur and the curious alike.  ZAREK aims to capture the joy and musical exchange amongst the artists, connecting with the music, each other, the audience, places, and ideas.

The Trio

Rebecca Harris: violin

Jan Zahourek: viola da gamba

Oliver John Ruthven: harpsichord

The Programme

The Bs – Buxtehude and Bach, two composers whose crosspollination led to the flowering of a style which defines German music of the High Baroque.  Bach once walked almost 300 kms to meet the Danish composer Buxtehude, one of his key influences.

The Bees – the bee connection to this programme is symbolic; Zarek recognising the harmony of the beehive and the vibrations through which they communicate. Find out more in the programme as the harmony of the bee hive, the geometry of the honey-comb, and the vibrational dance are mirrored in the counterpoint and melodic invention of these two composers’ music.
