Bach: The Complete Violin & Harpsichord

SUBSCRIBE

Saturday, November 10, 2018, 3pm

Venue to be announced soon!

J.S. Bach

The Sebastians present the complete sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach—these six sonatas are not only finely crafted, intricate, and beautiful pieces, but represent a historically important step in the development of the keyboard in chamber music. As Bach did in his fifth Brandenburg Concerto, the harpsichord steps out from behind its familiar “continuo” role and becomes an equal partner to the violin in these pieces. The sonatas span a remarkable variety of texture and mood—his son Carl Philipp Emanuel considered them “among the best works of my dear departed father. They still sound excellent and give me much joy, although they date back more than fifty years. They contain some Adagii that could not be written in a more singable manner today.” Join Daniel S. Lee and Jeffrey Grossman on November 10 for the chance to hear these pieces in one sitting!

Join us on February 23, 2019, to hear Nicholas DiEugenio and Jeffrey Grossman complete the circle of Bach’s music for violin and harpsichord!
