Painting of Abel, the 18th-century musician

Abel and the solo viol [Hampton]

Saturday 07 September 2024
19:00 to 21:00

Ibrahim Aziz explores the music and influence of the eighteenth-century composer, player and concert promoter Carl Friedric Abel [1723 - 1787]. He had many influential friends, including the painter Thomas Gainsborough [1727 - 1788] and David Garrick  [1717 - 1779]., and this concert will centre around his compositions for the bass viol - of which he was one of the last well-known exponents in a solo role.
