Formed in 2013, Ystradivarius exists to perform chamber music from the 17th and 18th centuries using instruments that are all copies of instruments made and played in baroque times, creating a special and distinctive sound. Ystradivarius is one of very few such ensembles based in South Wales. The composers of the works in this concert are closely related – Carl Philip Emanuel Bach was the son of Johan Sebastian, while Georg Philip Telemann, widely regarded as Germany’s leading composer during the first half of the 18th century, was the man chosen by Johan Sebastian to be his son’s Godfather.
