By about 1770, the constricted bell-mouth of the baroque bassoon had been opened up to give a free, voice-like quality of sound in the upper notes, whilst its powerful bottom notes formed the bass of the wind section of the baroque period #tweetoftheweek #baroqueinstruments

In 1722, Johann Friedrich Fasch became Kapellmeister at the court of Zerbst - he refused to compete against JS Bach for the job of Cantor at St. Thomas' of Leipzig. Bach felt similar, as five Suites by Fasch was found among Bach's manuscripts #THB_SouthStokeSeries #composerfacts

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies & arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
