Midtown Concerts’ weekly series continues with Joseph Jones and Friends and their program, Naturally Expressed in Music: The Pioneering Musical Style of J. E. Galliard. Join us live, via our website, YouTube, or Facebook.
Virtuoso oboist Johann Ernst Galliard was one among many of talented young artists who emigrated to London in the first decades of the 18th century. We explore his lyric and danceable style through his bassoon sonatas, written at the height of his success as a composer of wildly popular pantomimes.
