Bach: The Complete Violin & Continuo
Saturday, February 23, 2019, 7:30pm
Good Shepherd-Faith Presbyterian Church
152 W 66th St
New York, NY, 10023
Note: Good Shepherd-Faith Presbyterian Church is not wheelchair accessible. There are twenty steps up to the sanctuary with a hand-railing, and a landing partway up.
Nicholas DiEugenio and Jeffrey Grossman present J.S. Bach’s two sonatas and fugue for violin and continuo, surrounded by complementary pieces by Bach’s contemporaries. Often overlooked by performers, the two sonatas, gems of the chamber music repertoire, highlight multiple facets of his musical personality—sweet and joyful (the G major sonata), dark and unsettled side (the E minor sonata). This program is the perfect complement to the November 10 concert of Bach’s six sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord.
Students of any age can attend this concert for free; simply come to the door and show your student ID card.
