Workshop and Concert featuring the music of JS Bach with Jane Downer – oboe and Louise King – violoncello as well as myself on harpsichord.

13 November 2016 @ 4.00pm “Fandango”

The stirring dialogue of four hands at two harpsichords with the colourful setting of Luigi Boccherini’s popular “Fandango” bring the full flavour of Spanish musical passions to life. The intricacies of J.S. Bach’s Double Harpsichord Concerto in C and the rococo sonatas by Bach’s sons, W. F. and C. P. E. Bach offer an elegant counterfoil and an improvisation over a Bass by Bernado Pasquini provides an element of surprise. Book on https://www.trybooking.com/KYUH or  https://www.trybooking.com/192511

Recordings

A new recording featuring the UK baroque oboist Jane Downer is in the post production phase and should be released in early 2015. Recorded in Toddinton, Gloucestershire England with Peter Hagen playing chamber organ, this CD includes music by J.S Bach, Homilius, Tag and Krebs. The pieces are largely arrangements of the organ works of the above done in much the same style as was done in the 18th century to these same sorts of pieces. The sublime G minor fantasia by Krebs is indeed a sort of justification for this manner of arranging pieces, being specifically written for oboe and organ.

I love this review by Liz Silsbury: http://musictrust.com.au/loudmouth/harmonische-freude-works-for-baroque-oboe-trumpet-and-chamber-organ/#prettyPhoto and a further review in the magazine “Gramophone” http://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/harmonische-freude are some of the reviews for this CD. This last link also has links to the Chandos site so you can buy the CD.

Currently the only commercial or CD recordings Peter has done are in the field of new Australian Music featuring the Melbourne Composers League and in particular Dindy Vaughan whose “Up the Creek” CD was inspired by environmental concerns for our inland rivers, creeks and lakes. Mostly works for the duo “Questing Spirit” with Anne Norman on shakuhachi and Peter Hagen on harpsichord there are also six solos for either shakuhachi or harpsichord.

A few tracks are also on Le Tuan Hungs “Wings of a Butterfly” CD. Both are on the MOVE recording label. 3MBS in Melbourne also have some recordings of Peter Hagen directing Barok Blaser as well as some solo recordings. A community subscription radio station in amsterdam (De Concertzender) also has a few recordings of Peter Hagen playing solo harpsicord.
