Matthew Halls is Associate Director of The King’s Consort, with whom he appeared at last year’s Stour Music. As a harpsichordist he has established a reputation as one of the leading performers of the younger generation. In this programme he explores the genius of Bach as a composer for the keyboard, contrasting the introspective world of the French Suites and the sheer scale and sophistication of his English Suites, with the exuberance and virtuosity of his much celebrated ‘Italian’ Concerto.
