I’m glad I found you. I said this to my wife - without Mirthy, my life would be far less richer than it is now.

Event Description

A programme exploring the variety of transcriptions of Bach's music that have been made over the years since his rediscovery in the early 19th century. It will be based around pieces from 'A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen', commissioned by her in 1932 from thirteen of the most prominent British composers of the time. We will also hear a couple of transcriptions by Cohen herself, as well as pieces by Saint-Saens, Martucci, Whitticker, Kempf and Gabriel Jackson.

Meet the Host, Antony

Antony Gray is an Australian pianist. He has recorded Bach, Goossens, Williamson, Carmichael, Brahms and Poulenc for ABC Classics and a recital disc for KNS Classics. He has recently recorded a couple of discs of music written for teacher and student, with his students. He won’t be doing that again. He also teaches the violin, and hopes one day to be able to play it himself, makes delicious beetroot wine and has been trying for years, and without success, to grow artichokes. He has homes in London and Marrakech.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
