Before Covid-19 the Cape Town Concert Series and Cape Town Baroque Festival (CTBF) were due to collaborate for a special concert on the last weekend of September. Even though the festival cannot take place, the Concert Series presents a celebratory programme of solo organ works from the Baroque era on Saturday 25th September at 11am with CT Baroque director Erik Dippenaar.
The Baxter Concert Hall’s magnificent Von Beckerath organ is ideally suited to the wide range of tone colours of music from the Baroque period. It is also situated in an ideal position in the hall for the audience to see more of what goes on behind the keys, stops and pedals than at many other venues where the organ is hidden away. The programme includes works by Bach, Buxtehude, Bruhns, Corette and Cabanilles, as well as a mid-14th century wild card!
The Baxter bar will be open before and after the concert for refreshments and as always the Baxter foyer will be well ventilated. Masks do need to be worn in the concert hall.
